“The Furloughed Four experience was the best meal I’ve had in the Governor’s mansion.”

I was hosting a birthday party that I turned into a surprise engagement party. I wanted to be able to enjoy the night with no worries AND I wanted the food to be totally, completely, quintessentially modern-day New Orleans with full on flavor. I knew The Furloughed Four would deliver on all levels. They did andthen some! Professional to deal with (charming in fact), on top of all details, beautiful presentation, all delivered with style and warm hospitality. It was everything I hoped for. These gents are true New Orleans pros for whom I have complete respect.

The Furloughed Four have the remarkable ability to make whatever setting they find feel like a world-class restaurant, including your own home. And just like at the best restaurants, that experience goes beyond the food.

I have trusted staff at The Furloughed Four to entertain anyone from close friends to key clients to CPA office staff, and each time is a better experience than before. They are adaptive to many environments, creative in designing unique experiences, and most of all they make people comfortable. The team delivers memorable events, great food and wine pairings, and sometimes a little entertainment too. No one could go wrong hiring them for an event of any kind.

My wife and I have used the Furlough Four since their inception during the pandemic. They are easily 5 stars in service, food, clean up, ease to work with and are just all-around wonderful people. They have done everything from a top of the line crawfish boil, several formal dinners, a cocktail party, and multiple office Christmas parties. Everything is performed to the highest standards, equal to or exceeding the highest of a 3 Michelin star restaurant. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending The Furloughed Four!

We thought the idea of a home dinner party with a chef and sommelier sounded like a great idea! And, it was!!!! We had such a great experience we have now our Furloughed Four Friends several times! We look for reasons to schedule dinners!! If this was a 5 star program I’d give them 10!!!

Dear Ruth and Lennie: Thank you so much for a fabulous dinner, delightful company - and a lifetime experience. So happy to be included for something so wonderful. This will always be remembered- and my compliments to the kitchen/dining room team
So great to experience the love for ingredients, preparation, presentation, and the wines to match Perfect!



I cannot say enough good things about The Furloughed Four. I have enjoyed three dinners with them and each one was better than I could have imagined. Their team arrive early to your home and not a detail is missed. I love how each course is presented with details from the chefs who created them, while the sommeliers provide descriptions of each thoughtfully paired wine. The Furloughed Four provide a unique fine-dining experience that we didn’t even know we were missing!

Chef Chris Wilson

My wife surprised me on my birthday with a dinner at a friends house hosted by the furloughed four.  I was extremely impressed by how well all of them read the room and the guests and controlled the entire evening.  The food and service were perfect, only to be surpassed by the charisma of each member of the furloughed four.  This evening was so perfect and memorable that I will not host another event like this without them.
