10 Of America's Oldest Eateries-- Part 6: Antoine's Restaurant

ANTOINE'S RESTAURANT, NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA. //// Before Antoine Alciatore began dishing up French-Creole cuisine at his restaurant in 1840, most meals at public tables were basic offerings of boiled or roasted meat, fowl or fish without sauces. //// Alciatore introduced culinary delights such as chicken creole, crawfish etouffee and shrimp remoulade and helped make New Orleans a world-class dining destinatiom. In 1889, his son Jules created oysters Rockefeller, a rich green dish the color of money and named for oil magnate John D. Rockefeller. //// Today, the founder's great-great grandson Rick Blount, 56, continues the family's tradition at America's oldest family-run restaurant. //// I had heard that the place was quite expensive which kept us from going there the one time we were in New Orleans, but, next time. ///// On My List of Places to Eat. --RoadDog
