75th Anniversay logoAntoine's Restaurant is proud to be celebrating our 175 Anniversary this year. Started in 1840, obviously we have been doing something right throughout the years if we have lasted long enough to be considered the oldest continuously operated family-run restaurant in the country! Throughout the years we have continued to offer great service, atmosphere and culinary delights to all of our customers, from famous movie stars and musicians, to presidents, popes and generals alike.
