Founded in 1918 by Arnaud Cazenave. During his 30 year tenure, Cazenave amassed a complex of 11 buildings with a labyrinth of dining rooms.  

Cazenave's daughter, Germaine Wells, ran the restaurant for the next 30 years. At the end of her tenure, only one dining room and bar were left in operation.                                                              

Archie Casbarian purchased the restaurant in 1978. He and wife Jane modernized and renovated the entire restaurant. 

Archie and Jane's children, Archie and Katy Casbarian now operate the restaurant.

Arnaud's is one of the oldest family-operated restaurants in the country.


Located on the second floor of the restaurant is the Germaine Wells Mardi Gras Museum. It is a dedication to the founder's daughter, who was queen of more Mardi Gras balls than any other woman in Mardi Gras history. Her fabulous collection of jeweled Queen's gowns and accessories are on display to offer visitors a unique view of New Orleans' Mardi Gras traditions.
