NOLA Dining

Are you and your family looking for a new holiday tradition to share? Our Realtors® will be skipping the cooking and gathering around the table at these amazing restaurants around New Orleans homes for sale.

What Is Réveillon Dining?

During the 19th century, Europeans celebrated Christmas with a huge holiday feast to mark the end of a day-long fast. Creole families brought this tradition, known as "Réveillon" after the French word for "awakening," along to New Orleans for their post-midnight mass dinner. 

Traditional dishes on the réveillon table included chicken and oyster gumbo, game pies, and elaborate desserts. The custom faded out by the 1940s, but interest was sparked again during the 1990s. In a nod to contemporary dining preferences, réveillon is now served at upscale restaurants during more conventional hours.

Where to Find Holiday Réveillon Dinners

Holiday réveillon menus include four to eight courses. Traditional réveillon features ingredients that would have been available to Creole families during the 1800s, while contemporary réveillon incorporates molecular gastronomy, small plates, and other modern culinary techniques.
