Description: Housed in a historic 19th century townhouse blocks from the waterfront, 219 has for 40 years been a beacon for the most authentic gourmet creole experience possible outside of greater New Orleans. Executive Chef Marcus Olson has taken things one step further and introduced a truly unique gourmet butcher experience--USDA Prime steaks dry-aged 21 days in house and cut to order to your exact specifications. Your meal is complemented by a 750+ bottle wine list and a massive whiskey selection. We offer private dining rooms in addition to our elegant main floor, and offer tasting menus custom-tailored to your preferences. After your meal, you can unwind in our spacious second story lounge and be entertained by world class blues music most nights of the week. Whether your taste runs towards alligator and etouffee, or to succulent aged steaks, we invite you to rediscover your favorite Old Town institution.

Reviewed 3 April 2005

My wife and I choose to try out 219 while walking down trendy King Street in Old Town. As soon as we walked in we noticed all of 219's waitstaff having lunch. We asked if they were open and they said yes and seated us. After sitting for twenty minutes with no service, we got up and walked out. The waitstaff was still eating lunch and ha not made an effort to come take our order for lunch.
