New Orleans is no stranger to paranormal activity and or classic Creole fare. Muriel’s Jackson Square just happens to serve a generous helping of both.
At this French Quarter restaurant, patrons dine amongst the spirits of New Orleans’s past. Before serving up plates of goat cheese crepes, the building was believed to have served as a holding facility for slaves being put up for auction in the early 1700s. Then, in 1788, the Great New Orleans Fire partially destroyed the original building. The new owner, Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan, spent several years restoring the property and transforming it into a home for his family. In 1814, he lost his beloved home in a game of poker. Rather than be forced to vacate the house, he died by suicide on the second floor.
