The tables are set and the candles lit! Latil's Landing is taking exclusive dining to a whole new level. Why have a meal when you can have a dining experience?

Diners will have a private room in the original 1770's French House while enjoying a custom 5 course tasting menu, available with wine pairings.

For a minimum of 8 people this option is by reservation only and should be made 5 days in advance.

Each dining room overlooks the circular glowing fountain in a courtyard surrounded by lighted gardens.

Executive Chef Jeremy Langlois will personally work with each party to create the perfect menu for your dinner.

Open Thursday - Saturday
The Inspiration Behind Our Menu

This historic estate has seen the influence of French, Spanish, English, African and Native American cultures. Over the years these cultures have been reflected in the architecture, the dialect and most importantly- the food.

Executive Chef Jeremy Langlois believes it's important to honor the past while introducing new twists on historic Louisiana cuisine. Whether it's using French delicacies like fois gras or English staples like stewed beef, he always ties in a Louisiana element like stone ground grits or something homegrown like Sugar Cane.

Chef Langlois gets most excited when challenged to create a completely new dish drawing from inspiration from what he calls his Louisiana "pantry". One of the most notable dishes being the Bisque of Curried Pumpkin, Crawfish and Corn. The combination of these non-traditional pairings has become a staple in the restaurants and a guest favorite.

Regardless of the season, the menus always reflect what's growing in the gardens, located just steps from the kitchen, and what's available at local farmers markets. With so many elements to be inspired by, the culinary scene at Houmas House is worth the drive itself.

Keeping It Local

Although many locals enjoy dining at Houmas House, the historic estate is a popular tourist attraction, seeing visitors from around the world. When coming to South Louisiana one of the top activities is dining and experiencing the local flare of Louisiana's culinary scene.

This is one reason it's so important for Sous Chef Bryce Silvo to shop at local farmers markets and maintain relationships with local farmers. How can we say it's true Louisiana cuisine when we shipped it in from Oklahoma?

Between the produce and herbs grown on site and what we buy from local farmers, we can proudly say we offer a farm to table menu. Many off-the-menu specials are inspired by what's growing in our gardens and in season.

Louisiana has so many crops year round making it easy to be creative with seasonal menus while also supporting our local farmers. Thank you to all who have continued to support our restaurant this year. Doing so has also helped our local farmers.
