Fein Family Celebrates 50 Years Operating ‘Court of Two Sisters’

  • Published by Vedat
November 11, 2013 marks 50 years since the late Joe Fein Jr. acquired The Court of Two Sisters restaurant at 613 Royal Street and immediately began steps to preserve the property’s historical integrity.  

courtoftwosistersThe Court of Two Sisters is believed to have become a restaurant shortly after Prohibition ended. By World War II the restaurant was well known and the large, romantic courtyard was a popular place for marriage proposals. The legendary “two sisters” for whom the courtyard at 613 Rue Royale is named were born just prior to the Civil War, of distinguished Creole parentage. Emma (born 1858) and Bertha (born 1860) were said to be “as like as twins” even though two years apart in age. They operated a “rabais” shop called The Shop of the Two Sisters at 613 Royal Street specializing in all sorts of “notions” of excellent quality, including ball dresses. After the death of Bertha’s husband, the property changed hands many times and in 1963, local restaurateur Joe Fein Jr., and the Fein family began their relationship with The Court of Two Sisters.

Mr. Fein’s sons, Joe III and the late Jerry Fein, have continued with their father’s dedication to The Court of Two Sisters and now their children, the third generation, are directing the day-to-day operations and maintaining the legacy of the property’s history and reputation. With the Fein family’s expertise, The Court of Two Sisters has become known worldwide for its live Jazz Brunch, romantic Creole dinners, friendly service and beautiful, open-air courtyard. The Fein Family is proud to celebrate 50 years at The Court of Two Sisters and looks forward to many more years.
