A TIMELESS Restaurant in one of the world’s most culturally significant cities.

Sylvain takes its name from the first opera to take place in New Orleans. It was a raucous and comedic one, and we intend to recreate such raucous fun each and every night. Sylvain is located just a block off of Jackson Square and blends the line between restaurant and bar. Sylvain, set in a carriage house built in the late 1700s, honors our French Quarter neighborhood’s history while infusing an energy that reflects where New Orleans is headed.  Our menu offers Southern bistro classics elevated to the style of refined cuisine.  Our house cocktails look to the classics while embracing the resurgence of cocktail culture, utilizing fresh-squeezed juices, homemade sodas, tonic and bitters to reflect the seasonality and careful sourcing inherent to our identity. Our wines are mostly organic and biodynamic in nature but are accessibly priced. Here, guests should feel comfortable laughing loudly, having a shot of whiskey, and lingering amongst friends.
