K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen Celebrates 30 Years!

 A Legend Lives On

In 1979, when Chef Paul Prudhomme and his late wife, K, opened their "modest", 62-seat K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen on Chartres Street in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, they had no idea the restaurant was soon to become a sensation, with nightly lines of eager diners waiting sometimes hours to be seated.  Now accepting reservations, K-Paul's still thrills diners after 30 years in business.  Under the hands-on direction of Chef Paul Prudhomme, the restaurant has gone through major changes to keep up with the growing demands of its clients and the times, but has remained true to its original purpose: "Good Cooking, Good Eating, Good Loving!"

Based on the designs of the original 1834 structure, K-Paul's was extensively refurbished and expanded in 1996 and now offers seating for more than 200 dining guests. Dining areas include seasonal balcony dining, spacious dining rooms on both the first and second floors and an intimate climate-controlled courtyard for dining al fresco. K's Parlor, an enclosed private room on the second floor, is host to parties, corporate events, and other special occasions. Both floors feature an open kitchen where diners can see exactly how each delectable dish is prepared. K-Paul's gladly accepts reservations and offers catering on-site or anywhere around the world.

Executive Chef Paul Miller goes to great lengths to ensure the highest quality food. He states, "We have three kitchens and a bakery at K-Paul's and the philosophy and commitment to excellence will never change. There are still no freezers in the restaurant and only the freshest ingredients of the highest quality are used. This is why we change our menu daily."

Another reason to celebrate in 2009 is the return of K-Paul's deli-style lunch.  As many may remember from the early years, K-Paul's offered great lunch dishes upstairs in a very informal atmosphere.  As then, the mission now remains the same: creative and delicious offerings which are inexpensive and quick.  As always, the food is fresh and seasoned with just the right touch of Magic!

With lunch service Thursday through Saturday from 11:00am to 2:00pm and traditional dinner service Monday through Saturday 5:30pm to 10:00pm, locals and tourists alike are enjoying the delectable dishes and timeless atmosphere at K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen.  Guests may call in their lunch orders ahead of time at 504.522.8880 and pick up or order at the bar and sit down to eat.  For dinner reservations please call 504.596.2530. 

Chef Paul Prudhomme and the entire staff of K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen cordially welcome you to our restaurant to experience all that we offer.
