A Coastal American restaurant LOCATED IN A BEAUTIFULLY DETERIORATING NEW ORLEANS MANSION BUILT IN 1883
A truly Coastal American restaurant, Cavan’s menu is an exploration of the cuisine of the regions along the Eastern Seaboard and the Gulf of Mexico. In these towns, superlative fare crafted from incredibly fresh ingredients melds seamlessly with a casual and welcoming atmosphere. The ambition and hope behind Cavan is to be a world-class, yet truly fun neighborhood restaurant.
Cavan is located in an honestly salvaged mansion that was built in 1883. Most of the original details remain, and we made sure to keep the building’s scars intact to show how the building has aged. While the building may be seen by some as elegant and striking, our atmosphere will always be upbeat, warm, engaging and fun for all. A historic mansion into which we invite everyone who lives in or visits New Orleans. And we will always be a neighborhood restaurant first and foremost. We go to great lengths to be so. We have secured parking in the lot located just across the street so that locals can drive and park easily. We will always strive to have availability for walk-in guests whenever they choose to join us. And we will have the most comfortable and welcoming bars for single diners Uptown.

BEN THIBODEAUX, EXECUTIVE CHEF
"I generally like to keep our dishes straightforward. We work very hard to source the best ingredients, and we believe that great products can be prepared simply and honestly to create delicious dishes. I take particular pride in presenting familiar dishes in unique and inspired ways. While I genuinely try to exceed every guest's expectation every time, I truly want them to have fun with our choices and to never be intimidated by them."
ISAIAH ESTELL, BEVERAGE DIRECTOR
"Wine at its essence is about joy. We celebrate it for its ability not only to connect us to people and places around the world but with our friends at the dinner table. It should never be a source of intimidation or exclusivity. This is why we join the rituals of our guests and raise glasses with them. Our cocktails are simple and honest, to the same end - keeping the emphasis on the work that has gone into the bottles, and honoring the rich drinking heritage of New Orleans."
RUBY BLOCH, PASTRY CHEF
"I love that desserts' sole purpose is to delight and bring joy. I want guests to feel that indulging in something sweet is totally worth it because life is too short."
