Fodor's Expert Review La Petite Grocery

$$$ Uptown American

Flower shops sometimes bloom into intimate fine-dining establishments in New Orleans, and this one, with just-bright-enough lighting and a sturdy mahogany bar, has caught on in a big way with the locals. In the kitchen, chef-owner Justin Devillier draws on contemporary American tastes, using Louisiana raw materials whenever he can. He's been quietly developing a reputation across the country (and scored a nomination for a coveted James Beard Award). Signature items include the blue-crab beignets and Gulf shrimp and grits with smoked bacon, though many locals return to the red-leather banquettes for the signature burger and a round of cocktails.
