Crabmeat and Artichoke from Masson’s Restaurant
Updated: Mar 21
Masson’s Restaurant was located by the lakefront in New Orleans. To get to the restaurants on West End, you would have to pass by Masson’s. The menu was French with a Creole influence only in its seasonings. It was apopular restaurants in the 60’s and 70’s. But as the new Creole Bisto’s started opening in the 80’s, few people were traveling to the lakefront for Formal dining.
