About

Royal House Oyster Bar was originally the residence of the historical Tortorici family of New Orleans. The family had the main floor of this original residence converted into a café. As years went by the café developed into a flourishing restaurant, Tortorici’s, and became the fourth longest running restaurant in the French Quarter amongst names like Galatoire’s, Brennan’s and Antoine’s. The latter two are located very close in proximity to the famous 441 Royal Street address with Brennan’s next door and Antoine’s across the street. It is evident that this corner, well known for hosting famous restaurants was also popular for having a strong Hollywood presence. Famous superstars including Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin were regulars at Tortorici’s, the Italian American hub located across the street from the New Orleans courthouse.

In 2005, the unfortunate disaster of Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, yet this historic landmark survived. In 2008, it was revitalized and restored under new ownership, to become the new Royal House oyster bar and seafood restaurant
