About (from their website)

The original meaning of the word ‘restaurant’ was ‘to restore’ and, says JoAnn Clevenger, “Restaurants were originally more than just a place to find a meal; restaurants existed to soothe and bolster the weary soul with comfort and indulgence. Like the earliest restaurants, my goal for the Upperline is to be a haven for our guests, restoring their serenity after the daily hassles of the world with great Louisiana food, serious wine, and Creole hospitality.” But Upperline is more than just a restaurant, it is a way of life and a strong fixture in the local community. From festivals and charity fundraisers, to theme dinners and business etiquette courses for some of New Orleans’ most renowned universities, there is always something going on at Upperline.

Perhaps Frommer’s Guide to New Orleans said it best, “Get out of the Quarter. Get out of the Quarter. Get out of the Quarter. Are we getting through to you? Hop on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar first thing. Admire the gorgeous homes along the way. Aside from its historical significance and interest, this neighborhood, full of fabulous houses and lush greenery, is just plain beautiful. At night, sample what’s new and happening in New Orleans cooking. We recommend the more-or-less contemporary Creole food at the Upperline. Today you must begin to see what else New Orleans has to offer.”
