Fine Dining on Site
In a city known for spectacular food, The New Orleans Grill, formerly named the Grill Room, has long been recognized as one of the Nation's top restaurants. Executive Chef Jonathan Wright's contemporary European cuisine draws on his French training and the bounty of Louisiana products. Quickly named "New Orleans' Best New Chef" by New Orleans Magazine (October 2003), Wright was named "one of three Chefs to keep an eye on" in the U.S. by Esquire magazine (November 2003). The restaurant's elegant setting features fine furnishings and a warm palette of gold, coral and cinnamon accentuated with polished marble and custom floor coverings. Three new museum quality murals by renowned local artist Auseklis Ozals are focal points of the room and complement the Windsor Court Hotel's magnificent collection of European masterpieces. Measuring approximately 17 x 7 feet, each mural captures a different New Orleans scene: tranquil plantation countryside, Jackson Square and the bustling French Market. Complementing the food, The Windsor Court's sommelier maintains a unique, world-class wine cellar built on springs to protect the 10,000 bottles of exceptional vintages in case of hurricanes or earthquakes. A significant collection of Bordeaux Grand Crus crowns an award-winning list of some of the world's finest wines. In addition, Polo Club Lounge, the classy cigar-friendly lounge adjacent to the Grill Room, resembles a private English club. Piano music adds to the convivial atmosphere, along with appetizers, a light menu and the finest of spirits.
