Opened in 2016 by Ace Hotel with support from Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman – the James Beard Award-nominated chefs – Josephine Estelle was named in honor of their daughters. This idea of family continues to be rooted in everything we do, and over the years we’ve cherished every opportunity to serve our local New Orleans community along with visitors from all over the world.

Josephine Estelle is located in New Orleans’ bustling Central Business District, just a short walk from Bourbon Street and the Superdome. We’re open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We serve a menu emphasizing seasonal local ingredients, delectable wines and handmade pastas prepared daily.

Experiences

  • Jazz Brunch in Josephine Estelle

    Multiple dates available
    We think a good brunch should go something like a jazz quartet. Pancakes ground you like the walking bass, egg yolks coat your palate like the lush sounds of a grand piano, coffee adds some mid-morning rhythm, and the citrus brightens the mood like a sting from a horn. Josephine Estelle offers weekend brunch from 8am to 3pm with Or Shovaly, playing from 10am to 1pm, creating a soundscape to make your morning that much better.

    Very accommodating staff. We asked if outside seating was available and they said it was closed for the season but they opened up a table for us and served us outside on a beautiful day. The food was delicious. Portions were not large but enough.

    The restaurant is beautiful and the ambience is very modern and fun. The food was great, our inconvenient was with our server that was not welcoming and had zero patience with us, we were a group of 8 including 2 over 80 years old grandparents visiting New Orleans for the first time who don’t speak English.

    We were one of only 4 or 5 tables filled in the room. Nice location but had that hotel restaurant vibe - connected to what looks like a historic hotel but had mid-80s style decor. Food was good but sort of ordinary, like you would get at Olive Garden.

    This was marketed as an “experience” and a “jazz brunch” and it absolutely was not. There was no live music and the crowd noise was so loud and the minima music coming from a record player was impossible to hear. Our waiter, JaQuincy, was WONDERFUL, but he was overwhelmed. And my husband’s crab Benedict had a crab ratio on it that I hope my orange juice has in my mimosa—and let’s just say I am looking for color, not flavor. Although my lemon ricotta pancake and yogurt parfait were delicious, I still would not go back, unfortunately.

    Hi Kristen, I greatly appreciate you having Brunch with us, yet am sorry to hear that your expectations were not met. We will take this feedback to make the necessary improvements. And thank you for the kind words for Dequincey. Please message me when you can so that we can discuss further at enquire@josephineestelle.c om. Best Regards, Jaime

    Eggs Benedict special was a little sad. The manager offered to make it right but after 30 min the burger never came. So we left.
