“In the heart of the french quarter”
Though 613 Rue Royale is named for Emma and Bertha Camors, sisters who once owned a notions and fancies shop here, the Court of the The historic Court of Two Sisters restaurant is located in the heart of the French Quarter. We are known for our large, picturesque dining courtyard, daily Jazz Brunch and romantic Creole dinner. Two Sisters has a long and interesting history.The lovely three-story building sits on “Governor’s Row,” the 600 block of Royal Street that was once home to five governors, two state Supreme Court justices, a future justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and a future President of the United States. 613’s own resident was Sieur Etienne de Perier, the royal governor of colonial Louisiana between 1726 and 1733. Such a famous block lent itself to rumors, and it’s said that the outrageous Marquis de Vaudreuil--the colonial governor who turned New Orleans from marshland into a “petit Paris”--also once lived here. Emma and Bertha belonged to a proud, aristocratic Creole family; their “rabais,” or notions, outfitted many of New Orleans’ high society women in formal gowns, lace, and perfumes imported from Paris.
This is perhaps the best jazz brunch I've ever been to- and likely the most authentic. The brunch buffet seems limitless and each item is more delicious than the next- if somewhat spicy in true New Orleans' tradition. The courtyard is dining destination that can't be matched. It's just beautiful- and can keep things relatively cool (I recommend going earlier rather than later) even in New Orleans' extreme heat. It's a truly historic and wonderful experience.
Delicious brunch in a beautiful courtyard with jazz music and outstanding staff, what more could you ask for? Absolutely wonderful!
