Garden District Pub

Originally established in 1966 by their parents, Anthony and Josie Sciortino, the owners of the Garden District Pub, Dianne and Veronica Sciortino, have re-established this Lower Garden District location with all the charm of days gone by. The exposed brick walls reflect its many faces throughout the years. As far back as the 1950s, Dianne can remember shopping at the then Square Deal Grocery, owned and operated by Tassistro family. She remembers large fruit and vegetable stands gracing the sidewalk in front and shelving to the 12-foot ceilings.

In 1962, the Sciortinos purchased the building and converted it into a barbecue restaurant -Anthony's Barbeque House- serving rotisserie chicken and ribs and po-boys of all kinds, homemade potato and Italian salads - all made with Ms. Anthony's (as she was affectionately called) home recipes. After (Hurricane) Betsy passed, Anthony's was one of just a few buildings with electricity. Realizing that many of his customers and friends were without utilities, he made his way to his suppliers, stocking up with as much as his car would hold. As the rotisserie turned, the customers came, thanking Mr. Anthony for opening, since most of them had no way to cook. Their ability to pay meant nothing; serving their needs meant everything!
