About (from their website)

La Petite Grocery’s name pays homage to the storied history of its home, a more than century-old building that’s acted as a cornerstone of the community throughout the years – as a coffee and tea depot, grocery store, butcher shop, florist’s studio, and since 2004, a restaurant. After Hurricane Katrina, Chef Justin Devillier and wife, Mia, helped rebuild the infrastructure of La Petite Grocery and took over ownership of the Uptown restaurant in 2010. Here, Devillier puts his creative spin on traditional New Orleans cuisine with much-loved dishes like Turtle Bolognese and Blue Crab Beignets. They opened sister restaurant, Justine, a lively brasserie in the French Quarter, in early 2019. Both restaurants have earned local and national acclaim. In 2016, Chef Devillier was named the James Beard Award winner for Best Chef: South, and the restaurant has earned a spot on Eater’s list of 38 Best Restaurants in America.
