We welcome you in joining us for Lunch, Dinner & Sunday Brunch. 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 been standing 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.

Great food again. Crab beignets and shrimp and grits are my go to. So good. Didn’t love the variation on the French 75. Otherwise perfect.

We love the food at LaPetite Grocery. The crab beignets are so wonderful that we each order one for ourselves. No sharing 😊😊. Hubby got shrimp & grits & I did the appetizer of short ribs. We tell all our friends how wonderful the food is every time we go. Looking forward to our next visit My only disappointment was I wanted to order a virgin Bloody Mary But was told couldn’t do that. But who orders virgin bloody Mary’s in New Orleans. Thank you 😊

Our meal was good. The specials were very good. Prices were a bit high for what we got, though. I didn’t remember that being the case. It was also less crowded for a Friday night than lay time I was there. Wonder if that’s related.

Great food and service.
Justin needs to purchase 2-4 more tons of AC for the dining room. With $200-300 final checks for 2 diners, one should not have to sweat or fan through a meal. Cool the place down or close until you can.

Have been here many times...this experience on a weekday night seemed way overpriced especially since restaurant seemed to be not full. We love the ambiance usually and we must say service was impeccable...food offerings not as exciting as usual but pricer than prior times.

Entrees (cold) brought to table while in the middle of eating our apps. 4 slices of cold Waygu returned to kitchen, 3 came back. They did send a dessert, in addition to the one we ordered, though, so there’s that.

Our favorite lunch spot in NOLA but the menu seemed a little stale and only one special for an appetizer, a lunch entree and a dessert. It seems like they usually have more specials to choose from and when you go to a restaurant several times, it is usually nice to have specials to pick from if you have tried everything on the menu.

NOLA seemed very slow. Maybe it’s the heat! And hopefully the fall will bring fresh new items either on the menu or the specials.

All that being said, the pork chop lunch was excellent!! And we will definitely keep this place on our lunch rotation in NOLA. Such a great atmosphere!!

We went for lunch on a Saturday. There was no lunch menu and most entrees were over $30 and some appetizers as much as $17. It was just too expensive. I had not been in a while so I can’t say how recently the prices went up but I do remember going for lunch more than once and it was much more reasonable. Service was fine and food was good. Would have ordered more but since I had a $32 entree I passed. Had hoped to get a nice size crabmeat salad or something similar. We did not even have dessert because if the prices. Group of 6. Wanted to add that we were not offered a Coolinary menu and did ask if there was a lunch menu. I thought Coolinary was for the whole month of August.

As usual the place was clean, very nice, with good food. We think they must have moved some of their staff to their new restaurant, because they seemed to be short handed when we were there m, not the usual great service.
We all got the Coolinary menu, and it was okay.

I loved everything about this restaurant! We chose this spot for our final meal before dropping our son off at Tulane...and really just picked randomly but were so delighted. Everything from the polite and knowledgeable service, to the DELICIOUS food and classy ambience will make me want to return every time I’m in NOLA. I loved that the menu offered a combo of regional delicacies like shrimp and grits, rabbit and beignets, but also had a burger and nice salads etc. I also loved the neighborhood.
Nice job LPG! We’ll be back.

We went to La Petite for a lunch date during Coolinary Month. It did not disappoint! The waitstaff were very pleasant and attentive, the food was incredible, and while the normal menu can be somewhat pricey, the Coolinary specials were very reasonable. We will absolutely go back!

I told server that I can’t eat scallions or chives and they seemed to put extra scallions and chives on everything I ordered. Very disappointed. Takes a lot for me to motivate to write a review

Charming space with solid service, however we were a bit disappointed with our dinner entrees. Great presentation, but my modest serving of gulf fish was overcooked. And the sauce on the soft shell crab was underwhelming.

Delicious lunch. Tried the Coolinary menu. Nice cold corn soup for a hot day. Sauce on pork cheek croquettes was tasty. Great pastrami sandwich on rye bread- very filling. Grilled shrimp were cooked perfectly- not dried out.

Terrific spot for upscale but casual dining. Eaten there twice in the last 10 days. Delicious food, pretty atmosphere but very loud. The downside for the evening was a very "snarky, unpleasant" waiter; she obviously wasn't pleased to be at work. If she were serving us again, I would seriously have to reconsider returning.

We wanted something really nice but not overly fancy (no micro-foam). La Petite Grocery fit the bill perfectly. The space is evocative of an earlier NOLA time, and the food! Amazing. We loved every appetizer and every dish we had including desserts. The fish dip, stuffed rigatoni, turtle bolognese, panne rabbit, chicken confit, white clam pasta, blueberry tart cake: Everything ! Plus, the sommelier was knowledgeable and led us to an off-list special bottle at a reasonable price that we all loved.
