Experience the Big Easy in a Big Way

Feast on Creole and Cajun specialties in a swingin’ 2-story jazz palace with a beautiful open-air atrium.

Pass under the striped awning and into a romantic replica of traditional French Quarter architecture for authentic New Orleans cuisine and nightly live jazz. Inside a sprawling 15,000-square-foot space with a wrought-iron balcony overlooking the revelry of the Downtown Disney District, taste the melting pot of flavors that makes New Orleans cooking so unique.

Dine in the garden courtyard near a babbling fountain or sup in a stately dining room where topsy-turvy Mardi Gras umbrellas adorn the ceiling and colorful beads and murals add splashes of whimsy.

A Parade of Crescent City Specialties
Southern-style sides like bacon-braised turnip greens, Andouille sausage grits and horseradish mashed potatoes sing of the bayou, while the French Quarter salad and po’ boy sandwiches like the panéed chicken, made with parmesan-herb crusted chicken and Creole mustard aioli, make for inspired lunch choices.

Make any day Mardi Gras with tempting desserts like the decadent Creole red velvet roulade or the attention-getting bananas Foster, flambéed tableside for 2! A Carnival of New Orleans specialty drinks is served to revelers 21 and over, from the Hurricane to the potent Southern Peach Sweet Tea, as well as draft and bottled beers, some from New Orleans breweries. Ralph Brennan’s also features an array of wines by the glass to complement your meal.

Real New Orleans Roots
Ralph Brennan’s family entered the hospitality business in 1943 with the purchase of the historic Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street in New Orleans’ French Quarter, once the headquarters of the notorious pirate Jean Lafitte. During its 200-year-plus history, personalities ranging from Mark Twain to Frank Sinatra have passed through its doors.

To bring an authentic look and feel to the location at the Downtown Disney District, a dozen New Orleans-based artists were commissioned to create original works for art expressly for Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen.
