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.

    This is my second visit to PG. First was with family, second business. My experience has been consistently excellent at PG Everyone very attentive from greeting to table service to seeing us off. Joseph provided excellent table service and command of the menu offering details as well as specials. Cocktails well crafted and good selection. Wine selection, while not extensive, has full range of great selections. Appetizers and main course…selected a mix of specials and menu items. Specials included mussels app and red snapper main. Menu items were ricotta dumplings app and duck and braised short rib. All were a home run with exception of dumplings. The later being somewhat bland…but perhaps that’s part and parcel to being compared to the fennel-based steamed mussels. Best mussels all of us have ever experienced. All that said, portions right sized and clean plates all around. Passed on dessert though offerings, including beverages, looked very appealing. Looking forward to third visit!

    We absolutely loved the food. Every dish was just delicious. One small complaint, however. Except for the hostess, who was a delight, and our waitress, who was very friendly, every other server seemed to be in a bad mood and was borderline unpleasant. It is odd to leave a nice restaurant and have NO ONE say goodbye or “come again.” It was therefore oddly unwelcoming in a city full of some of the kindest people we’ve ever met

    Not sure what to say excited to go. Got seated at a nice table. Waitress was very nice and knowledgeable. 3 of us ordered 2 drinks. Still nice. Orders apps, meatballs gumbo crab beignets ricotta dumplings. The meatballs were cold send back and came out cold again average meatball nothing special. Gumbo below average especially for NO. Ricotta dumplings average at best. Crab beignets were good but not amazing as they were billed by waitress. Mains we preferred shrimp and grits, steak, roast chicken. Not one of the dishes was special. All solid but not great. This place is living off its reputation in NO with so many places to go in would never go back here. Sorry to say.

    1. The Good: Those blue crab Beignets are everything, everyone says about them! Amazing!! 2. My eggs benedict was terrible, first time it was cold. The second time the eggs were over cooked and not soft boiled (and not real warm either). 3. My server never smiled nor made me feel welcome, it was a horrible experience. 4. I will recommend the Beignets, but take them to go.

    The food is very good and the menu is very creative. One note I have: the "blue crab beignets" are basically crab in fish and chips batter. I had the seafood stew as my main and it was throwing serious fire; my wife had one of the specials and it was worth having. There's nothing dressy so wear what makes you comfortable; I wore a t-shirt and jeans and didn't feel out of place.

    Great food and nice ambiance. The only reason this wasn’t a 5 star experience is our server was stiff and impersonal. We plan to dine there again. Hopefully the service experience was a “one off” and not typical.

    La Petite Grocery was as wonderful as it was reputed to be. I went for the blue crab beignets, which were absolutely the best beignets I can imagine. The quantities of food were manageable, appreciated so that there was room for dessert. And the desserts were particularly complex and interesting - we tried all four.

    Skip the pre-fixed menu on special occasions. It is wildly overpriced for what you get. They are known for their crab beignets which was not on the pre-fixed special occasion menu so go when they have the regular menu. We spent a small fortune on an adequate meal but not worth the price.
