La Petite Grocery
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!
Great experience. Great food, although i wish the menu was a little more "interesting."
As always, one of the best in the City!!!!
Scallops were perfectly pan seared. Nectar snowball dessert was to dir for. We will definitely be back for another date night!!
My favorite place for a fancy lunch!
Fabulous meal all around. We will definitely be back.
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.
Traditionally this is a good place, but this latest lunch experience was very disappointing.
Great good on food , service and ambiance in the “new normal “ Covid environment.
Loved being able to sit outside.
Food was pricey but delicious. Menu isn't too large but lots of creative options and all prepared carefully with the freshest ingredients. Drinks were strong. Great neighborhood spot.
Best meal in New Orleans. The entire menu is incredibly creative and thoughtful. Don't miss the crab beignets! Amazing staff. Wonderful cocktails. Out-of-this-world desserts. Can't wait to return!
Terrific food, outstanding blue crab beignets and dessert.
Restaurant is nice but certainly not over the to on decor Heard so much about the hamburger that we both ordered them. Good but not great. Our server spoke so low we eventually gave up trying to hear her.
Wonderful service and as usual food is amazing.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent!
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.
Great time under odd double-hurricane preparations atmosphere.
Wonderful food, fantastic service and great ambiance, highly recommend!
La Petite changed the French fry receipt, and I loved them so much our table got two orders!
Wonderful food and libations. Perfect for special occasions or just catching up with friends.
Amazing food and service!! Can’t wait to go back!!
We were celebrating our 29th anniversary. The staff made it perfect. Our waiter, Alejandro Romero, was thoughtful and knowledgeable. The food was wonderful and the champagne gift was a lovely gesture.
Excellent wine selection. We really enjoyed our outside table. Service was excellent. Crab beignet appetizer was slightly more enjoyable than our meal. Just the right portions for both of us.
We went for mom moms birthday, and have been very worried about Covid restrictions , they were above and beyond our expectations. We felt very comfortable and all of their employees were extremely careful and diligent of their customers.
As usual the food was superb. We ate outside and felt safe, restaurant followed safety guidelines.
Great experience. They are following all safety rules and the food was delicious. Can’t wait to go back
Off to college dinner!!❤️🌻
Here's a restaurant where standards have been maintained. Still producing exceptional food and providing a top-tier dining experience despite COVID requirements. The changes in table density etc will make your meal experience worry-free. Kudos to the ownership and staff.
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.
The best shrimp and grits ever.
Service was very cursory. Almost like we were a bother. Food was great except for turtle bolognese, which was off from last time. Great space and ambiance.
Fabulous as always! Food is always excellent and consistent. Service and atmosphere are perfect.
Wonderful meal —don’t miss the crab beignets! We ate outside and the service was excellent.
Beautiful atmosphere. Don’t share the crab beignets, get your own and thank me later
Celebratory lunch was perfect. Burger was perfect and the wine choice by the waitress was perfect and refreshing. All COVID precautions were followed, and loved every minute.
