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.

IMHO one of the best restaurants in the long list of great establishments in the New Orleans area. Worth the trip from the French Quarter to Magazine Street. Don't miss out on the Blue crab beignet appetizers and rabbit entree. Our favorites.

Celebrating my friend getting a new job. We ordered the Crab Beignets and knew if this was what the beginning of the food experience was going to taste like, we had made the right choice with La Petit Grocery. We were so happy with our appetizer selection, we allowed the chef to choose our meal. I had the Scallops and was over the moon with the meshing of the flavors. My friend had the Chef's Special of the evening which was fish and she could not stop eating. From our entry to our departure, the restaurant offered exceptional quality in service and flavors. Diners will not be disappointed.

While our server didn't hover, Alex was quick to respond to our needs. The various food categories, from appetizers to desserts, are unique. The Snowball dessert comes highly recommended! Our celebratory supper evening was a success!

The chicken breast and pan jus were delicious. The special feature was a fried pork chop. The sauce on top was great. The pork chop itself could’ve been a little more tender however it was still good! Great atmosphere for a quiet date night. The wine the waitress suggested to pair with the pork chop paired nicely and I appreciated her advice!

I just wish for healthy options. Nice piece of fish grilled with fresh veggies. Don’t want everything sauced.
You do a great biz. Just request something for locals who eat there often.
Great staff

I took my girlfriend to La Petite Grocery for a birthday lunch, and our meal was delicious. The blue crab beignets were exquisite; the shrimp and grits also were fantastic. The special pork sandwich was a bit salty and dry. The service was perfect.

The food as usual was excellent, I haven’t been there in a while. The service was a little slow and a bit lackadaisical although the servers were very kind. Certain details pertaining to the food were unusual, in that certain ingredients mentioned in the menu were in fact not present on the plate or had been switched. But this was not a big deal. Service issues and ingredients may have been due to Covid related problems.
