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. Reservations are preferred.

    Top quality all around. Easy to get in for lunch. Note that lunch has the same menu as dinner. So if you are having a hard time getting a reservation for the evening, pivot and go in for lunch. Totally worth it.

    Once I saw the blue crab beignets on the menu, this place was on my to-do list for Nola immediately. The food was delicious, I had the bc beignets, the fried green tomatoes (which were good but I probably wouldn’t choose again), and the Bloody Mary whose quirky name I’m forgetting. Service was fantastic as well, all in all a lovely brunch.

    Every once in a while you have a lovely, memorable experience in dining! This was special indeed. Food was delightful and innovative! Jacob, our server was charming knowledgeable and efficient. This was very special. La Petite would be great for a romantic lunch or for us special times with friends. La Petite was the highlight of our trip to New Orleans. The location on Magazine is a great break from Bourbon Street.

    Tough not to get good meal in New Orleans but LPG was the best that we had during our 6-day visit in the Crescent City. Panned rabbit, one of their signature dishes, was outstanding. Also an impressive wine list - and a selection of Bourbon whiskeys on the carte.

    Amazing from start to finish! The food was some of the best I have had in my over 30 visits to New Orleans over the years. I had a delicious red snapper special with risotto that couldn’t be beat! Drinks were on-pointe. Service was smooth and perfectly accommodating. Atmosphere was charming with a unique history to boot! Desert was top-notch. I will return again and again.

    La Petite is our favorite NOLA restaurant for good reason - the food is always absolutely amazing. If you're looking for a truly special dining experience, that's La Petite. The flavors and attention to detail are unmatched. The service is also excellent and professional. A definite MUST if you're in New Orleans.

The food was absolutely delicious - we had gumbo, dumplings, alligator bolognese & broccoli! We stopped at the bar for a drink before the meal and the bar service was top notch too.

    Food was delicious but a gluten free (celiac) member of our party had next day symptoms consistent with gluten -- suspect that flour may have been used in preparation of crispy fish skin, although dish was described as gluten free.
