First of all . . Plan to smell like this place the rest of your day. No vent = stinky at work the rest of the day. The staff is NOT friendly. Not sure why. . The place was pretty much empty at 12:30 on a Tuesday. Turkey mushroom melt that carried over from the previous owner is good, but... More

This review is not against the restaurant. ..I just didn't like the muffuletta. Too salty for my taste. Wanted to try it because I had seen it on tv as a must try when u visit NOLA. If I return it will not be for the muffuletta.

While visiting the Garden District, we were very disappointed to be turned away by commanders Palace because one of our party was wearing shorts. It was lunchtime and hot outside and we really needed a break so we stopped in at the grocery and what a pleasant surprise! We ordered grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon and OMG! This was the...

After wrapping up a lengthy self directed tour of the Garden District we wandered past the highly rated Commander's Palace & realized we couldn't stop for lunch because we were not dressed appropriately (husband had shorts & sneakers). We wandered back up to the streetcar line to see what might be around and fell upon The Grocery near a stop... More

I lived this place. It's bare bones decor and a deli, but it's the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat before doing the garden district tour. I had the muffuletta sandwich which was wonderful. Chock full of meat and goodies, it was so large I couldn't finish it.

I live a short walk from The Grocery and my boyfriend and I have been going there regularly for the past year or so. We were so happy when we found out they were only closed temporarily for renovations. The sandwiches are tasty, they have plenty of cold drinks and beers, and they carry a lot of local/regional products which... More

Shrimp Po-Boy wasn't as overloaded as I was told to expect, but flavor overall and quality of bread was great. Wife's Mufalletta sandwich was also good, but not phenomenal.

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
