We went to Upperline on a recommendation from our son. Had the tasting dinner. It was excellent—every part of it. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Atmosphere was charming. Great way to begin a visit to NOLA

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
