The French edition of Dinner at Antoine's, probably the best known novel by Frances Parkinson Keyes, was published in Paris fifty years ago. New Orleans Public Library has an extensive collection of foreign-language texts of Mrs. Keyes' works. Diner Chez Antoine's is available in Danish, Dutch, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish, in addition to the English and French editions.

Restaurants are kept by Frenchmen and in the French style. Dishes are a mixture of French and Creole cooking, which is much appreciated by "bon vivants."
