“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.
THE BEST place for jazz brunch, as far as music and food goes. Amazing bananas foster. And, most importantly, really unique and New Orleans-y atmosphere.
