THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED People's Grocery Restaurant Review

: For a lesson in New Orleans-style eating at its most simple, easy and, if in the right mood, satisfying, amble over to People's Grocery, when the craving for a good fried-shrimp po' boy strikes. Just a few steps from the clamor of Bourbon Street, People's exists to placate just such yearnings quickly and amply. Order your po' boy, walk to the back, grab a soda or beer from the refrigerator case, and in a few minutes you'll be served the definitive New Orleans classic, filled with sweet shrimp fresh from the fryer. No point in calling ahead; they've given up using such modern communications as the telephone.
