Napoleon House Restaurant Review: Nothing much ever changes at Napoleon House, and since the place has been in business for more than a century, that’s just the way locals like it. One of the French Quarter's most atmospheric old bars, Napoleon House draws habitués more dedicated to drinking than eating. Some years ago the owners decided to offer a casual menu that doesn't seek to challenge any competitors for its predictability. The muffuletta sandwich, while filled with the usual mozzarella, olive salad, ham and salami, is heated before serving, which tends to add to its oiliness. Jambalaya, with sausage and chicken, is serviceable at best. And salads and other sandwiches function as little more than quick nutrition between drinks. For dessert, check out the house-made cannoli. The wine list changes almost daily, but you can count on good values and budget-conscious pricing with choices drawn chiefly from the West Coast, although there are a few French selections to perk up the offerings.
