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.

The shrimp and grits were exceptional. The crab beignets were also delicious. The tuna was delicious but too small a portion for the price.

My husband and I spent a weekend in NOLA with our two kids (3 yrs and 3 months) and dined at cafés and white tablecloth restaurants alike. La Petite Grocery was not the most expensive restaurant we dined at but it was hands down the most delicious! The food was incredible and they were incredibly accommodating with our two children and even gave us a table with space to put the stroller next to it instead of us having to fold it down. Our three year old ordered the butter noodles (which they make from scratch) and they looked so good my husband and I had to each also have a bite. Overall a wonderful experience—excellent food, beautiful plating, and incredibly accommodating. We’ll be back!

They went all out to help us celebrate our twin birthday. The specials were over the top, and the custom dessert better than any dessert I’ve had at LPG before. Thanks!

Started quiet and got loud-ish as more people arrived
Crab beignet batter was light and tasty and the filling cool and creamy and delicate, aioli was bland
Turtle dish was the best thing I tasted on our table, rich
The seafood stew with banana peppers was in a zesty wine broth that demanded sopping with crusty bread (not complimentary)
Rabbit was pan fried and a very filling entree with spatzle and the slightest drizzle of sauce and crisp sauerkraut
We had pork belly and a steak that I did not taste but they got a good review from the person who ordered them
Servers were busy but adequate and definitely not bothersome
Space between tables was sufficient

Solid meal. Crab beignets were the standout. Unfortunately, the shrimp was extremely overcooked in the stew. Turtle bolagnese good.

Great service from our waitress. She didn't miss a beat and we were sitting outside.. Shrimp and grits were excellent. The lamb was good. Mac & cheese was flavorful but a bit dry, needs more cheese but the corn bread crumbs do make it unique as it brings a bit of sweetness. Blue crab beignets were disappointing so was the ricotta stuffed gnocchi were bland.

This was my second visit, and it was just as fine as the first! Due to the hot weather, I did no main course, but combined appetizers: the heirloom tomatoes were very good and a very generous portion, but the ricotta dumplings were truly inspired, and the fried oysters were also outstanding. Creative cooking at its best. Also good wine selection by the glass for moderate prices. Michael's service was friendly, prompt and attentive, helped out by others, as in all well-run restaurants. Look forward to my next visit.

We had an amazing meal at this venue last night. Our server recommended the blue crab beignets, which were sublime. Everything else was fabulous, from the hangar steak with fries to the turtle bolognese to the shrimp and grits. Festive scene.

We had heard great things about La Petite Grocery and were happy to finally have dinner there. It was a great experience. i especially enjoyed my entree, a daily special of triple tail on a bed of lentils. Delicious! For dessert, the butterscotch pudding is a great choice.
