Cuvèe is a French term that means a blend of wine. However, when referring to champagne, Cuvèe can mean “the best juice.” Owners, Jody and Dollie Plaisance, hope that the name Cuvèe inspires a lively environment where the "best blend" of food, cocktails, and hospitality create memorable experiences for each guest.
Our cocktails are all original and crafted in house. Each wine is carefully hand-selected to offer great value in both flavor profiles and cost. We strive to create a relaxed atmosphere both inside and out so that anyone can come and enjoy that wonderful blend of atmosphere, friendship, and food.
Experience the delightful tradition of afternoon tea at Le Salon. Sip from a selection of 30 of the finest loose-leaf variety brews while your ears enjoy soft melodies from a harpist or pianist from the LA Philharmonic Orchestra. Enjoy an assortment of delicious tea sandwiches, scones and sweets as you engage in one of New Orleans locals most beloved and fashionable pastimes.
Bayou des Familles, a lazy waterway home to many alligators, turtles, egrets and other wildlife, takes center stage as our restaurant’s design provides its diners with a natural picture show. It’s in this unique setting where friends and family unite to experience southern Louisiana charm and culture in its finest form. It’s an experience not to be soon forgotten.
The 15-mile drive from downtown New Orleans will take you through the Jean Lafitte National Park. You’ll arrive at Restaurant des Familles and park under moss-filled century-old oak trees. The restaurant’s Acadian-style architecture provides a glimpse of bayou life that once was.
Our menu features authentic representations of Cajun and Creole favorites such as Crawfish Etouffée, Seafood & Okra Gumbo, Seafood Platters and Turtle Soup. Our signature dish, Alligator Stuffed Mushrooms with Alligator Sauce Piquant, will tempt even the most timid diner.
We look forward to your visit.

Discover New Orleans
New Orleans has been attracting food lovers for over two centuries, and it's perhaps the first American city to develop a cuisine all its own. Drawing from its rich French and Spanish origins, the city has given the world iconic Cajun dishes such as jambalaya, king cakes, and oysters Rockefeller. However, that doesn't mean that popular modern cuisines aren't well-represented too. Asian, Italian and soul food, in particular, are definite standouts. Even non-gourmands won't leave the city without enjoying beignets and a café au lait in the French Quarter. It’s the rare American chef who hasn't spent time polishing his or her skills here. With such a rich culinary history, New Orleans reigns supreme as America's premier foodie destination.
