OLD TOWN ROOTS
The restaurant was painstakingly remodeled to the Victorian era’s magnificent 18th century architecture. Built in 1890 by the prosperous merchant Lewis MacKenzie, the interior decor features period mill work which is evident in the chair rails, cornices, and solid mahogany bars. The antique furnishings were purchased amidst the excitement of the London auction houses and include matching marble fireplace mantles, Hungarian crystal chandeliers and solid brass wall sconces. Of special interest are the brilliant-cut mirrors fashioned by one the few remaining artisans who use the techniques created at the turn of the century.
Our main dining room boasts twin marble fireplaces from England as well as its beautiful Hungarian crystal chandeliers. This room offers elegant dining with a Victorian setting, a custom mahogany bar and stain glass suitable for any occasion. The Bienville Room is often booked for celebrating anniversaries, business lunch functions, and for Saturday and Sunday brunch.
We often host private room parties for business and celebrations in the Jackson Room with a maximum capacity that seats up to 40 guests. For larger parties we can offer to combine different dining rooms to seat up to 100 guests.
