Four strangers walk into a bar…

… and 30 years later they open a restaurant

30 years ago, four people working in the hospitality industry met in a bar on Toulouse Street in the great city of New Orleans. Over time they became friends and when the first one, Jon, moved away, he stated, “our paths will cross again.” Sure enough, over the next three decades, they worked together and apart in establishments across the United States, including San Francisco, Telluride, Chicago, New York, Washington DC, and of course The Big Easy. When COVID hit an opportunity presented itself and Toulouse was born.

Using local, sustainable ingredients, we produce our spin on New Orleans food, in the type of place where tourists feel at home, locals are at home, and everyone is surrounded by family and friends.
