New era for Antoine's

New era for Antoine's: NEW ORLEANS — When customers started using the telephone to make reservations at Antoine’s Restaurant, owner Roy Alciatore was insulted that anyone would refuse to send a letter requesting a table.

Alciatore might be horrified to learn that Antoine’s has now embraced online reservation service OpenTable. And that’s just one of the changes as the restaurant celebrates its 175th anniversary and strives to balance the old with the new.

“One of the roles that we have in New Orleans is that we are the old guard. We are the oldest example of this French-Creole cuisine that New Orleans is so famous for,” said Rick Blount, the fifth generation to run the restaurant.
