Vacherie Restaurant & Bar | Authentic Cajun Cuisine

Vacherie Restaurant & Bar is the home of authentic Cajun food in the heart of New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. Our restaurant, bar, and cafe are conveniently located on the first floor of the Hotel St. Marie, helping to make it one of the best hotels in New Orleans.

Vacherie restaurant is named for the town of Vacherie, Louisiana — a small community situated on the banks of the Mississippi River. Chef Jarred Zeringue grew up there, amid the sprawling farms, grand live oaks, and antebellum plantations that characterize this quiet corner of Louisiana. Vacherie’s landscape and lifestyle are the direct inspirations for the Vacherie Restaurant menus.

Vacherie is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks. We also offer a range of options for customers on-the-go or catering.
