Eating New Orleans {Justine}

It has been a while since there has been so much hype surrounding a new restaurant opening in New Orleans. J and I finally dined at Justine, the new restaurant opened by the couple behind La Petite Grocery and Balise.

I can honestly say that the restaurant is outstanding. The food was delicious, and the space was even more outstanding. The French vibe is definitely a hit.

Justine is a Brasserie in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. Opened by husband-and-wife team Justin and Mia Devillier, Justine combines the sophistication of Parisian brasseries with the playfulness of the South’s most lively district. 
“A French Quarter restaurant has been a longtime dream of ours, and finding this space conjured up a vision for a boisterous, glamorous French restaurant,” says Chef Justin Devillier, the 2016 James Beard Award-winner for Best Chef: South.
Located in the May & Ellis building (formerly the Hurwitz Mintz building), recently the recipient of a historic preservation design award, the cafĂ© side opens to the Chartres Street sidewalk, emulating the quintessential Parisian-street experience with daytime fare. The kitchen room is anchored by two large communal tables for a shared dining experience, overlooking the kitchen led by Chef & Owner Justin Devillier and Executive Chef Daniel Causgrove. Two additional spaces, an intimate back dining room and outdoor dining area lush with greenery, provide ample dining options in the 200-seat restaurant. In the antique-brass and smoked-mirror embellished bar room, Bar Director Jesse Carr has crafted a menu driven by the drinking culture of France: simple and classic, with a focus on the spirits beloved by French families.
True to the heart of French brasserie culture, the bustling, multi-roomed restaurant offers a versatile space to be enjoyed by all, whether it’s for a weekday lunch, afternoon glass of wine, or celebratory dinner. 

Many of you already know that J and I are huge fans of our neighborhood staple La Petite Grocery, so I am super excited for the success of Justine. Reservations are a must especially on the weekends.

My only regret is that I did not get the hamburger, for it looked amazing. But I will be back to try it in the near future.

Justine, y'all!


  1. What a fun place. Beauty and good food and good drink area always a treat.
    Happy Weekend Ron. Enjoy.
