The Prohibition Room serves as an intimate, private dining room with an interactive wine and dining experience with Chef Jimi Setchim, but did you know it’s steeped in history?
Broussard’s first opened its doors in 1920 when prominent local chef Joseph Broussard married Rosalie Borrello. The two moved into her childhood home on Conti Street and later purchased the land in 1929. Together they lived in the apartment upstairs, while Broussard worked downstairs to create a five-star restaurant combining local Creole cuisine with classic French dishes inspired by his formal Parisian culinary training.
The elegance of the Prohibition Room serves as an intriguing backdrop to it’s history. In January 1920, Prohibition went into effect. As the tale goes, Broussard’s was raided; however, no goods or evidence were recovered…it is rumored that they hid the bottles behind the iron fireplace covers. Find nothing, say nothing…
