Le Petite Houmas Restaurant
Due to the many requests for Latil's Landing Restaurant to open earlier on Sunday, we invite you our Sunday Brunch at Le Petite Houmas Restaurant, Chef Jeremy Langlois describes it as "Cafe Burnside and Latil's Landing having launched their very own specialty restaurant." Open on Sundays from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm, we offer a brunch in our Pavillion Ballroom. The menu includes breakfast specialties like Eggs Creole and Grits & Grillades. We also offer our Crown Jewel Burger and our specialty dishes from the Latil's Landing menu. Our Brunch is a little more casual, with a larger more varied menu that the whole family can enjoy. Come try our "Sunday Brunch with a Southern Twist."
Reservations are not required, but we suggest them for tables of 6 or more.

Cafe' BurnsideOur lunchtime restaurant open from 11 am to 2 pm daily, is a place where one can take a break from their hectic day and enjoy a casual lunch. Our menu is varied and ranges from a great healthy salad, to a fried oyster po-boy, to a filet mignon, done just right. Relax and order a mint julep or select a bottle of wine from our extensive wine list, and enjoy the afternoon. The Pavillon at Houmas House design is reminiscent of the garconierre at Germania Plantation, located across the Mississippi River. Old brick walls from remnants of a cotton warehouse built by the Princess of Monaco in 1883, are accented with 250 year old windows and large spans of glass which allow our guests picturesque views of the gardens and fountains. Large oil paintings of garden scenes accent the walls to create an ambience that's classic, yet comfortable.

The Wine Cellars ofA collection of Fine Boutique Wines has been selected to
accompany the Nouvelle Louisiane Menus of Executive Chef Jeremy Langlois. The Wine Cellars at Houmas House are as unique as the Plantation itself. We have converted the historic water cisterns at the rear of the main house into handsome "wine cellars". Inside the large water tanks have been replaced with cast iron balconies and circular staircases that are used to fetch that specific vintage of champagne or wine. Unique bottle holders are attached to the masonry walls, allowing each label to be read without having to touch the bottle. The white wine cellar is also home to our selection of fine champagnes, it is kept at exactly 56 degrees F. The red wine cellar is kept at 70 degrees F. We are able to house over 1000 cases and 500 varietals of wines. These wonderfully creative spaces are not on the tour, but we would be happy to show them upon request.
