New Orleans Grill One of the city's greatest restaurants offering the finest cuisine served flawlessly. The cuisine is drawn subtly and carefully from the rich culinary heritage of New Orleans, evolving as the seasons bring in fresh local ingredients. To complement the wonderful food, the sommelier maintains a unique, world-class wine cellar built on springs to protect the 10,000 bottles of exceptional vintages in case of hurricanes or earthquakes. The grill features a significant collection of Bordeaux Grand Crus and the most recent acquisition is a vertical selection of Dom Perignon- 1996, 1975 and 1978. The New Orleans Grill has garnered some sixty awards in just the last five years, including number 1 in New Orleans by Gourmet Magazine, number 3 in the USA by Conde Nast Traveler, Five Diamonds from the American Automobile Association and Five Stars from the Exxon Mobil Travel Guide.

Le salon reawakens with a new image: champagnes and classic cocktails supplement tea as the beverage of choice. An elegant array of appetizers and desserts and rifts of sensual contemporary jazz envelope the air. Chosen from 18 of the finest loose-leaf varieties, your tea arrives in fragile Wedgwood china. In the background, a harpist or a string quartet performs. By night, Le Salon becomes the most desired smoke seat on the New Orleans scene. In the same gracious setting, mellow with soft lighting, choose from fine wines, mixed drinks and more than a dozen champagne cocktails. If coffee is your brew of choice, ask for the Grill Room's strong rich Windsor Court blend, ground on site. Our chef has designed a delicious sampling of small tastes handsomely presented on a tiered tray and customized to your preferences. Try lobster sausage, oyster and bire terrine, caviar, quail eggs and pate de campagne. Well-known local musicians such as Jason Marsalis, Roland Guerin, Ron Markham and Bruce Winston play contemporary New Orleans jazz all week. With any luck you may also be treated to a surprise performance: Don Henley of the Eagles was a guest at the hotel and joined the Matt Lemler Trio with his trumpet for some improvisational jazz. * Open Daily - 1430-1600 * Sun-Thu - 1730-2030 * Fri-Sat - 1730-2300Bars
Polo Club Lounge The cigar-friendly Polo Club Lounge evokes an 18th century gentlemen's withdrawing room- with soft, intimate lighting to enhance the rich tobacco color scheme and embracing, overstuffed chairs and sofa. Open from morning until late at night, the bar serves a light menu, hors d oeuvres and of course, your chosen beverage. It is best known for an extensive martini menu and a selection of wines, ports and cognacs unequaled in the city. Humidors filled with a wide variety of cigars are also available. Equestrian bronzes and oil paintings decorate the lounge, along with a grand piano played nightly by favorite local pianists. A jazz trio also entertains on Fridays and Saturdays. While the Polo Club staff often welcomes the rich and famous, pianist Charlie Dennard was especially thrilled to accompany Paul Mccartney as he sang an impromptu love song to his bride-to-be.
