La Petite Grocery
This was once a much-loved food store (it even delivered), but Uptowners have become equally fond of the little bistro that converted the space into a jewel of a dining establishment. The locals keep returning for the carefully constructed and ever-changing menu that might include grilled quail with stone ground grits, pan roasted veal rib-eye, or tomato braised redfish with popcorn rice. The dimly lit interior gives this spot real charm. The crowd tends to be older early in the evening, while around 9pm stylish couples fill the banquettes. Solo diners are always welcome at the bar.
