The Original Pierre Maspero's


440 Chartres St.
New Orleans LA 70130

This historically significant building, erected in 1788 and one of the oldest in the French Quarter, played a role in New Orleans history. During the first decades of the 19th century this coffee house was a meeting place where brothers Jean and Pierre Lafitte and their men met to plan escapes. It was also in this historic site that Andrew Jackson met with the Lafitte brothers to plan the defense at the epic Battle of New Orleans.

Today, it serves as a locally-enjoyed restaurant where travelers to the French Quarter can dine on authentic New Orleans cuisine while enjoying the historic property, great views and cozy ambiance.
