We welcome you in joining us for Lunch, Dinner & Sunday Brunch. 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 been standing 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.

Excellent evening at La Pettite Grocery. Very creative appetizer presentations and the apple celeriac salad was very tasty. Opted for the rabbit entree that was moist and cooked to perfection. This is an uptown gem and will be back.

First time at this landmark restaurant in NOLA. It did not disappoint. The blue crab beignets were perfect. I had the short rib app for dinner and split a side of Mac and Cheese with my husband, who had a burger bc that’s what he was craving. The short rib was fantastic; the Mac and Cheese as decadent as it sounds. All good. No misses at this restaurant.

First, the food was outstanding. Food quality was marvelous, flavor pallet was top notch, and ingredient freshness was exceptional.

Second, the waitstaff and overall service sets the bar for what every restaurant should measure itself.

Third, the value was on point. I will not hesitate to spend more to get more. With this meal, I felt I received everything I paid for and then some.

I will recommend this establishment and will not hesitate to return!!!

Not being from New Orleans, we eat at La Petite almost every time we come into town. This is uptown New Orleans at it's finest. Good cocktails, great whiskey and wine selections. Crabmeat beignets and fried green tomatoes for appetizers. Shrimp & grits and turtle bolognese for our meals. Never disappoints.

Everything superb except for hospitality - we had a reservation for a group of 7 at 11:30 for lunch. It was extremely cold in NOLA that day with a wind chill in the 20s- we got there ten minutes early and were not allowed to walk into the restaurant until precisely 11:30. I found this very inhospitable as it was really cold. Then the waitstaff was unfriendly, not ugly, but unsmiling and perfunctory. Not at all what I have experienced at LPG before.
Manager needs training in guest hospitality. Otherwise, food and ambience as good as ever.
