    Back in the 1700s, the property where Muriel’s now stands was used as staging area for slaves that were to be sold in the area, and several of their ghosts haunt the restaurant. But, they have been mostly appeased by the owner’s blocking off a room for the ghosts and offering them a fresh loaf of bread every day. After that, the man who built the current structure as his dream home in 1789, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, committed suicide upstairs in 1814 when he best his house on a poker game and los. Today, his ghost haunts the upstairs lounge, which has been named The Séance Room in his honor. In addition, two mischievous ghosts in the bar downstairs like to shatter thrown glasses and casually trip waiters, and Muriel’s ghost herself also haunts her namesake establishment, sliding chairs on the wooden floors and performing spooky Gregorian chants in the stairways. But if this wasn’t performance enough for you, check out Muriel’s Pre-Theatre Menu, which they prepare specially on evenings that the Mahalia Jackson Theater, Le Petit Theatre, or the Southern Repertory Theater put on shows.

    A buzzy classic that serves a Bloody Mary strong enough to kickstart any Sunday, Muriel's is a must on a summer visit to NOLA.

    Sunday brunch was amazing. Right in the heart of Jackson Square in a "haunted house" the vibe was right on. Awesome bloody mary's (whattya know?) with a great meal, and a jazz ensemble hit the spot.

    This is my favorite restaurant of all I've ever been to all over the world! You cannot beat the ambience, sassy (but entertainingly excellent) service, and outstanding food!!

    This is a mandatory stop whenever in NOLA!
