History of Royal House Restaurant and Oyster Bar

Royal House Oyster Bar was originally the home of the Tortorici family of New Orleans. They 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 near 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, this historic landmark survived Hurricane Katrina when it hit New Orleans. In 2008, it was revitalized and restored under new ownership, to become the new Royal House Oyster Bar and Seafood Restaurant.
