“challenging the city’s renowned Creole cooking with authentic Cajun cuisine”
Originally opened in the early 1900’s, it has long been a favorite of local dining connoisseurs. It is one of the first restaurants in New Orleans to challenge the city’s renowned Creole cooking with authentic Cajun cuisine that depends heavily on foods from Louisiana’s bayous and the Gulf of Mexico. The flickering gas lights and canvas canopy that announce the entrance to the Bon Ton Café are the first hints to an experience in dining that has almost vanished in our fast-paced lives.Housed in the historical 1840’s Natchez building, within earshot of boat whistles on the Mississippi, its checkered red and white tablecloths, wrought-iron chandeliers and soft-brick walls create an atmosphere to enjoy Cajun food prepared stylishly from original family recipes. Combined with the down-home friendliness of the staff, dining at theBon Ton often becomes an event long-remembered.Originally opened in the early 1900’s, it has long been a favorite of local dining connoisseurs. After a brief recess, Al and Alzina Pierce came to New Orleans in the early 1950’s from their home along the bayous of South Louisiana and reopened the Bon Ton. With them came recipes that their families had created while living deep in the Cajun country of Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes.
