Two Family Businesses Turn 175 in 2015
Gillies Coffee in New York and Antoine's restaurant in New Orleans.
Antoine's is known to many as the grand dame of fine French-Creole dining - and the birthplace of oysters Rockefeller. Run by a long line of the Alciatore family, it claims to be the oldest family-run restaurant in the United States.
Gillies is a wholesale specialty coffee merchant in New York run by eighth generation family members.
