Im so looking forward to eating at La Petite Grocery again. We had a family of 6 and were seated at a table in the back of the restaurant which was perfect as we had a child. That allowed us a private place to enjoy our meal and let our child walk around our table without disturbing the other guests.... More

Another Top Chef alum, another fantastic restaurant! Truly everything about La Petite Grocery is perfection. From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed -- the hostess was very lovely. Our server was knowledgeable and passionate about the food and provided great insight. She was kind enough to score two crab beignets for us -- which were INCREDIBLE. We also... More

I was taken here recently for dinner by work colleagues, and the restaurant was absolutely jammed. The appetizers, ordered by my hosts, were top notch, some of the best I've had in NOLA. Mussels and fries were very good, and the desserts were excellent. Cocktails also good. There were six of us around a large table, and we often couldn't... More

La Petite Grocery is well rated. I went on a Saturday evening. The only opening was at 6:15 PM much earlier than I usually eat. I had a table in a corner out of the sun. It provided me a good view to observe what was going on in the place. It filled up quickly by the time 7 PM... More

Off the beaten path but worth a trip. Large room with lots of windows. Great menu and variety of salads, fish and grilled meats. Large portions and good wine list. Worth going to.

It has been some time since I have eaten at this lovely corner spot uptown on Magazine Street. But, I was in the neighborhood and stopped in with a colleague for lunch. The service was crisp and professional. The cocktails were well poured, but not too “crafty”. And, the food was divine. The breadth of Louisiana cooking is represented on... More

Food we had was amazing...no complaints there. Our server was nice however my biggest gripe (which isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things) was the service of our wine. We ordered a bottle soon after sitting down. It didn't arrive until after the appetizer - which to me - if I order a bottle, I want to... More

We went for Sunday Brunch. There was a featured soup of creamed cauliflower with a touch of cooked ham, I can still taste it, it was so good. We had the Paneed Rabbit, a Filet, and Shrimp and Grits, all was excellent. Don't forget your wallet as this place isn't inexpensive as we were over $50.00 a plate, The food... More

We wanted to taste true Southern food but brought up to date and La Petite Grocery surely delivered. The dishes look wonderful, taste good and are interesting. But the place is really noisy, we were just a party of three and had a hard time understanding each other and the waitress when she came by. The accoustics of the place... More

La Petite Grocery is a small bistro style restaurant with a few booths and tables and a small bar. It's a dressy casual place, where slacks and polos for men and dress or nice pants for women are acceptable. The parking can be crowded. On weekends, when you call for reservations, you will be given a code for the small... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
