La Petite Grocery Restaurant Review

: In an increasingly restaurant-rich part of Magazine Street in Uptown New Orleans, La Petite Grocery stands out for creative, well-executed cuisine. Chef Justin Devillier excels with French classics (don’t miss the crab beignets with aïoli) and a light touch. Impeccable ingredients, many locally grown, are showcased in a polished but unpretentious manner on a seasonally updated menu. Appetizers might range from steak tartare to grilled octopus to ricotta dumplings. Among the entrées, we like the braised lamb shank with polenta, crispy shiitake mushrooms and lamb jus, and the “Louisiana bouillabaisse," which rotates off the menu from time to time. The wine list may not be as lengthy as those at some comparable restaurants, but the smart balance of domestic and European selections is well conceived. Look for a good line-up of by-the-glass choices, too, as well as several surprise offerings. For dessert, pastry chef Bronwen Wyatt's Louisiana cane sugar crème brûlée and the coconut tres leches cake with muscadine grape sorbet and salt-roasted peanuts will compete for your attention.
