The French Quarter Restaurant is nestled in the heart of West Hollywood, California, between Hollywood and Beverly Hills. We are surrounded by shops and boutiques that make up the French Market Place. Opened by the Simms Family on February 19, 1974, the restaurant has grown over the years and now serves upwards of 10,000 customers a week,Much of the artwork contained in our web site and throughout our restaurant was created by artist, Leo Meiersdorff. Leo was born in Germany in 1934. He was a master student of Oskar Kokoschka in Austria and other late Bauhaus painters at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts. In order to finance his artistic studies, Leo began to perform jazz throughout Europe.
