The Royal House Story

Our building has been a French Quarter icon for over 100 years, ever since it was built by a local family as their residence. After starting out as a cafe on the first floor, Tortorici's restaurant became a New Orleans hot spot for many years, rivaling some legendary NOLA eateries. In 2008, we bought the place, restored and renovated it, and turned it into Royal House. We're proud of the history of our restaurant and embrace its culture through our laid-back attitude and delicious Creole classics. Experience the beauty and flavor of real New Orleans at Royal House. Come in and dine with us today!
