About (from their website)

A NEW ORLEANS INSTITUTION

The Camellia Grill was first opened on December 19, 1946 by a New Orleans Family and it lasted for 3 generations. From the day it opened, the Camellia Grill served it’s classic diner fare with a style and grace unlike any other. It reigned as king for many years until Hurricane Katrina. Despite suffering little damage, and much to the local’s displeasure, Camellia was shuttered following this devastating storm. During this long period of closure, local residents and tourists alike plastered the icon’s front door with letters pleading for it to reopen. Finally, after months of being closed, the fabled eatery was purchased and reopened by local restaurateur Hicham Kodr. As soon as the restaurant opened its’ doors to the hungry crowds, it was serving up it’s famous grub like it had never skipped a beat.

THE BIGGEST MELTING POT OF NEW ORLEANS CULTURE IN ONE PLACE

This modern day melting pot was way ahead of its time and proudly boasts of its reputation for hiring African Americans at a time when racial tensions were high. The Camellia Grill was the first restaurant in New Orleans to hire African Americans to work in front of house, and to this day still prides itself on promoting from within. This progressive mindset has set the stage for what is still one of the biggest melting pots of New Orleans culture in the entire city. On any given day you might find famous rock stars, politicians, poor people, students, cops end even robbers. It’s a place to get to know your neighbors and to be a part of the real New Orleans.
