On Saturday, May 16, 2020, we re-opened the dining room for dinner service in abidance with the City and State Safe Opening Guidelines. Reservations are preferred. 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.

Intimate room. Socially distant seating. Shrimp and grits were delicious and pork chop was yummy. Expansive wine list. Would definitely recommend.

This was an outstanding dining experience! We were celebrating a birthday and anniversary and the La Petite Grocery team made us feel incredibly special from the moment we arrived until we left. Everything was well thought-out and prepared, from the drinks to the desserts.

We loved it!! Alex was a very nice, funny, and knowledgeable server who gave us a great suggestion for a Rose. Everyone who touches the table was friendly and professional. We love LPG!

We had the fried chicken sandwich off the restaurant week menu and thought it was AMAZING! Thank you for great food and service!

Adorable place--would love to come back and eat inside. Outside was great for the pandemic. Loved the ricotta dumplings in a smoked tomato sauce and the roasted chicken with garden peas and baby carrots. Burger looked fabulous as well.

La petit lives up to the hype!! In my 5 years at Tulane, I watched everyone choose this restaurant for dinner with their parents, and never ended up taking my own. Well I finally made it for happy hour and dinner and I get why everyone loved coming here. The blue crab beignets are to die for. They have a DESSERT on the happy hour. I had the vodka Collins, an old fashioned, and a glass of wine for 18 dollars (which may explain the two hour nap I just woke up from). The shishito peppers and fries were also phenomenal and last but not least - those ricotta dumplings - something I will surely have dreams of tonight. I am officially a La Petit fan. PS my boyfriends sirloin was bomb as well.

The service was very good, but the food was just ok. The brussels sprouts had a lot of balsamic vinegar and it was overbearing. The burger was really good, but the appetizers were just ok. I did not find the broccoli soup to be good.
