Peche {Restaurant}


Put this one on your list now. Peche, one of New Orleans hottest new restaurants, does not disappoint. Run to Peche. Do not walk (but I hope you can get reservations).



J & I dined at Peche on Saturday night. It was my first visit, his second.

Pêche Seafood Grill, located at the corner of Magazine and Julia Streets in the Warehouse District, serves simply prepared coastal seafood with a unique, modern approach to old world cooking methods. Featuring rustic dishes prepared on an open hearth over hardwood coals, Pêche’s open kitchen offers a unique eye-level view of the fire. The oyster bar showcases gulf seafood including oysters, crab meat, and fresh gulf fish.


Peche is set in a beautiful warehouse district building. The interior is rustic yet industrial (in a classy way). The interior reminds me of one of my Atlanta faves, JCT located in the trendy Westside.

After a couple of cocktails {scotch and ginger ale}, J and I shared a special tuna appetizer.



For the first course, I had the shrimp bisque and J had the gumbo.

For dinner, I enjoyed the shrimp roll similar in taste to the Northeastern lobster rolls. Scrumptious!

I also had a side of squash, bacon, & rice casserole. Delicious!

J had the baked drum with ginger, tomato, and crispy rice. He is still talking about how perfect this fish dish tasted.


I cannot express how delicious the food was. The atmosphere, the cocktails, and the delicious food make Peche a wonderful dining experience.

Part owned by Donald Link of Herbsaint and Cochon fame, Peche is a great addition to an already abundant new restaurant spots.

One strike…LOUD! VERY LOUD!!!

Peche, y’all!


  1. Can't wait to go there! I've been reading all those favorable reviews on it. Have a great day! xoxo

  2. The inside of this restaurant loos so intriguing. My husband would love all the seafood. I like the looks of that squash, bacon and rice casserole. I hope someday to get down that way. I've never been in Louisiana.


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
