The Pelican Club, offering a wide range of fabulous New Orleans dishes, consists of three dining rooms and a large bar fashioned from a handsome, 19th-century French Quarter townhouse, rising from the corner of Bienville Street and Exchange Place in the heart of the French Quarter. Owner, Richard Hughes, and his wife, Jean Stinnett-Hughes, transformed a neglected architectural gem into a welcoming restaurant decorated in a crisp blend of traditional and contemporary. Each room has its own ambiance, created with such diverse elements as burnished Louisiana cypress, contemporary paintings by New Orleans artists, antique prints, and the dramatic contrast of black-leather banquettes against cream-colored brick walls. Such an atmosphere is sure to make your meal feel like a truly New Orleans experience.

"We happened to be in NOLA over the weekend when they had the "White Linen Night" as well the start of "COOLinary", a month long experience of some wonderful restaurants that offers a special discounted 2 or 3 course menu for lunch and dinner. Bravo to Pelican Club for this year's outstanding menu selections as well as cocktails. The tuna sashimi was sublime with the wasabi glaze, the filet was well seasoned and tender and the crab cake with crab you can see. We went back a second night just so we could try different things. Kudos!"

Kingfish features New Louisiana Cuisine from beloved New Orleans Chef Greg Sonnier. The menu reflects Greg’s Louisiana-centric approach to food. At the bar enjoy both traditional New Orleans style cocktails, such as the Sazerac or the Pimm's Cup, as well as modern cocktails created by New Orleans famous mixologist Chris McMillian.

"The bar area is not huge but it is great and the bartenders know their craft cocktails. We had a group of 6 and ordered various cocktails that were well made. The burger is the thing to get, well seasoned, and the sweet potato waffle fries paired well with it. Definitely a low key place to stop for a great cocktail and food. Only thing that might be lacking is a "bar menu" some of finger foods to eat while drinking at the bar, be it nuts and olives or homemade sweet potato chips."
