Meaning ‘Dawn of Happiness,’ is a word that stirs the imagination of the Thai people.
Another meaning could be ‘Dawn of the Kingdom of Thailand,’ as Sukhothai was the
first free Thai city, founded in 1238 A.D., after two Thai chieftans liberated the city
from Khmer rule. Sukhothai thus became the seat of the first Siamese Kingdom, and
the centerpoint of an era of material prosperity, artistic greatness, and cultural
development known today at the ‘Golden Age’ of Thai history.

Though 613 Rue Royale is named for Emma and Bertha Camors, sisters who once owned a notions and fancies shop here, the Court of the Two Sisters has a long and interesting history.
The lovely three-story building sits on “Governor’s Row,” the 600 block of Royal Street that was once home to five governors, two state Supreme Court justices, a future justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and a future President of the United States. 613’s own resident was Sieur Etienne de Perier, the royal governor of colonial Louisiana between 1726 and 1733. Such a famous block lent itself to rumors, and it’s said that the outrageous Marquis de Vaudreuil--the colonial governor who turned New Orleans from marshland into a “petit Paris”--also once lived here.
Emma and Bertha belonged to a proud, aristocratic Creole family; their “rabais,” or notions, outfitted many of New Orleans’ high society women in formal gowns, lace, and perfumes imported from Paris. With a larger courtyard than its neighbors, the residence lent itself to visitors, and the sisters’ shop received many.
Marriage, reversals of fortune, widowhood--nothing could separate the two sisters. Indeed, as the Picayune was to report, the sisters died within two months of each other in the winter of 1944. They lie side by side at St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, united in death as in life.

The Gumbo Pot has carried on the legacy of serving authentic New Orleans food in the Farmers Market since 1986.

Since 1880, Commander's Palace has been a New Orleans landmark known for the award-winning quality of its food and many commodious dining rooms. The history of this famous restaurant offers a glimpse into New Orleans' antebellum past. In the early 1880's, when Louisiana officially joined the nation, eager young Anglo-Saxons flocked to this promising territory to make their fortunes. Since the Vieux Carré was the stronghold of the proud Creoles, these "Americans" (as they were defined by the Creoles) sought a residential section of their own. Thus was born the Garden District, with its stately Greek Revival homes and quiet, tree lined streets.
Here in the Garden District George W. Cable entertained Mark Twain; here Jefferson Davis spent his last days. And here, in 1880, Emile Commander established the only restaurant patronized by the distinguished neighborhood families. He chose the corner of Washington Avenue and Coliseum Street, a site that had been in turn, part of the J.F.E. Livaudais Plantation and the faubourg of Lafayette. In 1854 it was engulfed by the city of New Orleans and by 1900 Commander's Palace was attracting gourmets from all over the world.
Under different management in the twenties its reputation was somewhat spicier, however. Riverboat captains frequented it and sporting gentlemen met with beautiful women for a rendezvous in the private dining room upstairs. Downstairs however, the main dining room (with its separate entrance) was maintained in impeccable respectability for family meals after church and family gatherings of all sorts.
In 1944, Frank and Elinor Moran bought Commander's Palace, refurbished it and carried on its tradition of excellence with an expanded menu including many recipes still used.
When Ella, Dottie, Dick and John Brennan took over personal supervision of the restaurant in 1974, they began to give the splendid old landmark a new look. It was decided to design rooms and settings indoors which complemented and enhanced the lovely out
Jack Dempsey's Restaurant was named after a lively New Orleans police reporter for the States-Item named Richard "Jack" Dempsey. Dempsey was known for having a boisterous voice, a competitive nature, and a passion for journalism. Shortly before Dempsey retired, two policemen, with whom he frequently worked, felt that his characteristic personality, in addition to his ever-present straw hat and cigar, earned him the right to have a restaurant named after him! To know more about Jack Dempsey, click here to read an article about his life and career.
The restaurant exchanged hands for a few years until 1980 when Andrew and Diane Marino bought Jack Dempsey's restaurant from its previous owner, Joe Kipper. Since then, the restaurant has undergone several renovations and menu changes. Now, Jack Dempsey's is run by the Marinos' son, Sammy Baiamonte, who has carried on the tradition of using family recipes to make delicious New Orleans fare. Jack Dempsey's Restaurant is known for its "hole-in-the-wall" appeal as well as its delicious fried seafood platters, po-boys, and famous macaroni and cheese.
