Your Honor city
Posted by

The Showtime limited series Your Honor is set and was filmed in New Orleans, showing some magnificent filming locations of the Crescent City.

This is the first series starring Bryan Cranston since Breaking Bad finished, and both thrillers have a lot in common. Cranston plays judge Michael Desiato, whose son Adam (Hunter Doohan) accidentally runs over Rocco Baxter, the son of a New Orleans preeminent gangster.

Here is our complete and spoiler-free locations report of the series:

Lafayette Cemetery No. 1
Your Honor opens with Michael jogging through the historic Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, where his wife is buried. Located in the Garden District neighborhood, this beautiful 19th-century burial ground with name of French perfume contains many tombs and mausoleums of great architectural significance. The cemetery has been featured in several productions like the AMC post-apocalyptic series Into the Badlands.

This is amazing! Thank you. I’m planning a trip to cover this entire season of locations once the season wraps. This will be a HUGE help.

I’m actually from New Orleans, in love about 25 minutes away in Laplace currently. You done a great job explaining these locations.

Here is a correction for you! The Baxter House restaurant is actually The Rib Room at the Omni Royal Orleans on St. Louis. I believe the outside, hotel and pool scenes are the Bourbon Orleans. Even the last scene in Chapter 10 is the Rib Room for sure because we have a wine celler there that I can see in the background.
