a boutique hotel
Bistro Saint Emanuel opened its doors in 2022 offering cuisine inspired by a combination of Mobile's French colonial history and the Gulf region's culinary traditions. Originally, in the 1850s, the bistro was built and operated by a Corsican immigrant, Charles Antomarchi, who came to the New World to seek success in the French-speaking port city. Today, almost 175 years later, we honor that legacy and add a modern, Southern flair to our menu.
The beautiful restoration of our restaurant's interior draws from the Art Nouveau period, around the turn of the last century; an imagined update from its 1850s provenance.
We now serve brunch Monday through Thursday from 7am to 10am and Friday through Sunday from 8am to 2pm. Dinner is served Sunday through Thursday from 5pm-9pm (closed Tuesday) and from 5pm to 10pm on Friday and Saturday.
The Bistro is also available for private parties, corporate dinners & other special events.
