Come dine in this beautifully restored Uptown restaurant on Magazine Street and enjoy James Beard Award Winning Chef Justin Devillier's contemporary Louisiana Cuisine.

The La Petite Grocery name pays homage to the history of its home, a building that’s stood for more than a century. The original structure was built in the late 1800s and called the Central Tea, Coffee and Butter Depot. In 1908, a fire devastated the space and it was transformed into a full service grocery store. Later it was most notably a fine foods and butcher shop, VonderHaar’s Fine Foods until 1982. When La Petite Grocery opened in March of 2004, they similarly aspired to provide the neighborhood with exotic teas, locally roasted coffee, and fresh produce. By doing this, we hope to provide a dining experience that evokes nostalgia of old New Orleans. Reservations are preferred.

    The crab beignet was light and tasty, and seafood stew was perfectly seasoned, and the bread that came with it was perfect for soaking the delectable broth. The parsnip dessert was also excellent and had the perfect blend of tastes and textures.

    In recent years, an extremely annoying trend in fine dining has been spreading to even the best restaurants in New Orleans. This one was no exception. The noise level completely ruined our evening. We were a party of five, seated at a large circular table, and it was nearly impossible for us to carry on a conversation, even while we screamed to one another at the top of our lungs. Note, this was on a Tuesday evening, not a Friday or Saturday. I can only imagine how loud it gets on those nights. The solution, of course, would require the removal of many of the tables they have packed into the main dining room but that of course would reduce their profits so I doubt that will happen anytime soon. Our party made a vow last night to only patronize upscale restaurants in the city that have much smaller dining rooms or perhaps have undertaken significant noise suppression efforts. On a positive note, I imagine the noise level might be more acceptable in the area near the bar, although those tables only seat two diners. If you are a party of three or more, you probably will want to find a smaller restaurant with a more intimate atmosphere.

    This was a special experience. The ambiance was beautiful and fitting to the history of the building, with lots of little touches that are fun to look for. Our server, Kaylee, was fun to interact with, knowledgeable of the food and options, and helped us to work with the chef when there was an interest in a dessert to be modified to accommodate allergies. The beverages were excellent, the food was incredible. The bread was fresh and perfect. We had the special soup of butternut squash and pecorino that was heaven with how light and delicate it was. We had the paneed rabbit and turtle bolognese. Both were beautifully balanced with each ingredient shining. We finished off with the butterscotch pudding, which was an interesting combination that while it was a great mix of salty and sweet, felt slightly off. One thing that spoke volumes to me was how, towards the tail end of our experience, having a latter seating, tables were being cleaned, floors swept, etc. but we never felt rushed. As impeccable as everything was, I had high expectations for the bathroom and was not disappointed.

    We were in New Orleans with two other couples for a long weekend, and La Petite Grocery was our first dinner there. It did not disappoint! I don’t eat beef or pork, so I asked if the shrimp and grits could be prepared without the andouille. No problem. I was expecting it to be somewhat bland without the sausage, but it was super flavorful. The blue crab beignets to start were excellent, too. Fun place.

    Outstanding meal and service. We set next to the front window which was expected to be nice. We could watch the people on magazine street as they passed. Only problem was that we also were next to the bar. The folks at the bar were very noisy and lots of movement by our table. Our waitress was great. Drinks and food were presented in a timely manner. The duck breast was wonderful. My wife’s special, the flounder was great. For desert, I enjoyed the chocolate graunach and she enjoyed the butterscotch pudding. In spite of the noise and people wondering around our table, it turned into a pleasant evening. No, we did not complain or asked to be moved. It really was not that unpleasant.

    Love this quant spot. Definitely eat indoors as the street is pretty loud and there is no courtyard. Our server Alex was outstanding for our picky table full of questions. The manager was super accommodating when we needed to move tables from outside. The food was every bit the superior quality we were expecting.

    My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at La Petite Grocery. The food and service were impeccable! LPG’s take on Blue Crab beignets is a “10”! The braised short rib entree was rich, flavorful and melt in your mouth tender. It paired well with the goat cheese polenta and Brussel sprouts. The LPG cheese burger was extraordinary. The wine and spirits selection is quite good, as well. Whether an intimate dinner for two or a larger gathering, La Petite Grocery is an excellent choice!
