Latil’s Landing Restaurant
Houmas House Plantation, one of the South's oldest and most beautiful plantation estates, takes pride in announcing the opening of Latil's Landing Restaurant. In the tradition of Old Louisiana Dining, Chef Jeremy Langlois has created a menu that will delight and please the finest of guests, and present you with an experience rivaling those of the great Sugar Barons of the 1800's.
The French House, built in the 1770's by Alexander Latil, and now the rear wing of the Houmas House Mansion is set for your dining experience. The 230 year old house, complete with original beamed ceilings, cypress mantels, wood burning fireplaces, and original wood floors, is set between the Garden Carriageway and the Hampton Fountain and Gardens.
Along with a museum quality collection of art and artifacts, your dining experience will be accented by French Limoge china and dinner service, replicated from the originals of Houmas House, first created for Wade Hampton in the 1830's. A collection of fine wines has been selected to accompany the Nouvelle Louisiane Menu of Chef Jeremy Langlois.
Our lunchtime restaurant open from 11 am to 2 pm daily, is a place where one can take a break from their hectic day and enjoy a casual lunch. Our menu is varied and ranges from a great healthy salad, to a fried oyster po-boy, to a filet mignon, done just right. Relax and order a mint julep or select a bottle of wine from our extensive wine list, and enjoy the afternoon.
The Pavillon at Houmas House design is reminiscent of the garconierre at Germania Plantation, located across the Mississippi River. Old brick walls from remnants of a cotton warehouse built by the Princess of Monaco in 1883, are accented with 250 year old windows and large spans of glass which allow our guests picturesque views of the gardens and fountains. Large oil paintings of garden scenes accent the walls to create an ambience that's classic, yet comfortable.
