“New Orleans first brew pib”
The Crescent City Brewhouse is located in a legendary French Quarter building on historical property at 527 Decatur Street. The property was included in the earliest known city plan signed in 1722 -- records indicate a two-story, 14 room house was built on this site in the mid 1700's. The great fire of 1794 devastated much of the French Quarter and burned this house to the ground. After being rebuilt, it was the home of many New Orleans families of distinction until 1916, when it was used for fur processing. In 1991, the Crescent City Brewhouse opened on the site, bringing New Orleans and Louisiana its first brewpub. This represented a revival of the brewing industry that once flourished in the immediate area, and the first brewery to open in more than 72 years.
We came here based on a suggestion from our carriage diver on our tour. Excellent choice. Less busy than other restaurants (it was an early dinner) which is great when you have several young kids. Food was very good. My husband and I split an appetizer and main dish and it was more than enough food. Kid's meals were easily big enough for two kids to split. We also enjoyed their seasonal beer and the local favorite the Pimm's Cup. Both were very good. Live jazz band started around 6. The kids enjoyed watching the band preform as we were leaving.
