New Orleans is laden with 100+ year-old power players -- Tujague's, Antoine’s, and Galatoire’s all have to be mentioned -- whose food has managed to improve over the last century, who boast impeccably choreographed service, and who could vie for a spot as the most iconic restaurant in Louisiana. But do any of them do that while pulling off a two-story turquoise facade complete with a turret and matching striped awning? Nope, only Commander’s Palace manages that feat, and it has been doing it in the Garden District since 1880. If a spoonful of their rich, sherried turtle soup doesn’t convince you that the grandam’s plates are just as symbolic of the state’s food hub as the building itself, let current chef Tory McPhail’s 2013 James Beard Award and chef alumni like Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse, both of whom helped spread the regional cuisine to the country, serve as a reminder.
