PAST EXHIBIT: Tujague's: 160 Years of Tradition


The exhibit commemorates the 160th anniversary of the second oldest restaurant in New Orleans and the third oldest continuously operating restaurant in the United States. 

The retrospective exhibit takes visitors on a journey through Tujague’s history via photos, awards and memorabilia. Guests can take a look at the restaurant’s origins and family tree; learn about the importance of the Tujague’s bar (the oldest stand-up bar in America and home of the Grasshopper cocktail); uncover the ghosts of Tujague’s (some who are said to still be present in the restaurant today); and get an appreciation of the patrons’ significance on the restaurant’s longevity.

In honor of the restaurant’s incredible milestone, Tujague’s will be added to the National Culinary Heritage Register, an expansive list of culinary products, processes, inventions, traditions, and establishments that are at least fifty years old and have contributed significantly to the development of American foodways.
