There’s a certain intrigue in the long history and the labyrinthine warren of dining rooms, service bars and corridors at Arnaud’s Restaurant.

The French Quarter grande dame has been stoking that vibe lately with a series of periodic “Speakeasy Dinners,” which evoke the dark days of Prohibition when, according to restaurant lore, Arnaud’s served bootleg liquor to guests in the know.

The next dinner is coming up May 16, beginning at 7 p.m. The evening includes a four-course meal of Prohibition-era dishes with wine pairings and it costs $100. Guests are encouraged to dress in appropriate period style. Get the "secret knock" for entrance (and a reservation) at (504) 523-5433.
