Just visited Upperline in April after a few years and the meal did not disappoint, some of the flavors were truly sublime. The Duck continues to be one of my favorite entrees anywhere. Everything we ordered was wonderful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s

Upperline is in garden district. French quarter is on the opposite end. You can take a trolley. It's only $1.25 one way or $3.00 all day pass. Great way to see the beautiful homes!

You will need to give them a call. They gave us the perfect table for a quiet dinner away from traffic. I'm sure they can do the same for a table for one.
