Tujague's, the second-oldest restaurant in New Orleans, has been doing business on Decatur Street in the French Quarter since 1856 (see the Roadfood.com review). The owner of Tujague's, Steven Latter, passed away in February. His son, Mark, now runs the restaurant. Steven Latter's brother, Stanford, owns the building. While nobody has said anything definitive, there are rumors that Stanford Latter is about to sell the building that houses Tujague's.
Apparently, when Stanford purchased the building in 1982, it was his intention all along to rent it out to the highest bidder, until his brother Steven suggested they keep the restaurant and run it themselves. One of the more outrageous rumors is that Tujague's will become a fried chicken joint and t-shirt shop. This is probably in reference to news that one of the potential buyers already owns several t-shirt shops in the French Quarter.
We're keeping our fingers crossed that, somehow, Tujague's will remain in place, for now, and into the next century.
