The Pearl Restaurant & Oyster Bar
New Orleans, LA
The Pearl Restaurant & Oyster Bar was founded in the late 1920s. There are two signs: the blue one under the balcony and the red one above it. The red one has neon on only one side. The terrazzo oyster sidewalk has been here since at least the 1940s. The restaurant closed in 2015 and was still vacant in 2019. The signs are still there. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

Cafe du Monde
New Orleans, LA
The Cafe du Monde was established in the French Market in 1862. They are best known for their dark roasted coffee and beignets (square doughnuts covered with powdered sugar). [map]

Malt-N-Burger
Thibodaux, LA
The Malt-N-Burger opened in 1950. There were probably car hops originally. The ice cream cone sign might have come from a Dairy Queen. It appears to have had neon. [map]

Cut Rate Liquor
Leesville, LA
This Cut Rate Liquor building looks like a former drive-in restaurant. Does anyone know anything about this place? The building was vacant in 2019. [map]
