Upperline is a very good New Orleans Restaurant

We ate there in April '11 and I just realized I didn't post a review. We were there just after the long time chef left and the new chef stepped in. I believe there may have been a chef change thereafter, so ask around. I suspect that with a new chef, only the specials will change. The long time dishes for which the restaurant is known will likely never change.
I love Upperline. It’s not a big place, but it’s in an old house on Upperline and Prytania and filled with some whimsical artwork that I enjoy perusing. The one thing I don’t like is the chairs. They’re just wood chairs with the round seat that has the lip on it. After a while, they can get a bit uncomfortable. A pad on them would be nice.
Service was good, but the time between ordering the app and receiving it was a little long. I don’t like to be rushed, but I do like the app to arrive timely. We had foie gras which was melt in your mouth delicious, the crispy fried oysters with celery root remoulade (my app)-very, very good and I think one diner had a salad that was on the special 3 course meal that night. We all had the meal special with app, entrée and dessert for $45, except one diner. One had the slow cooked duck with ginger peach sauce, which he really enjoyed. Two of us had the Cane River shrimp and grit cake which is always very good. One person had an excellent fish special. We all enjoyed the entrees. We had the honey pecan bread pudding, some sort of ice cream, I believe, and I had a brandy Alexander for my dessert. Very good meal and nice experience.
Favorite meal in New Orleans

I loved the Taste of New Orleans

I chose the Taste of New Orleans menu selection and was very happy with it. The turtle soup and andouille gumbo were very good but my favorite was the duck etouffee. The fried green tomatoes topped with shrimp remoulade were outstanding. The roasted duck with a garlic, port wine reduction was so tasty. The meal concluded with bread pudding in a praline sauce that was the perfect end to a perfect meal. At $38, the Taste of New Orleans was worth every penny!

This quaint restaurant in an Uptown New Orleans neighborhood is tastefully decorated for fine casual dining.
Very distinctive menu including a Taste of New Orleans which provides servings of seven different dishes. Our party rated the quality of food as excellent.
The top appetizers were the Turtle Soup, Crispy Louisiana Oysters with Celery Root Remoulade, and the Duck & Andouille Etouffée with Corn Cakes & Pepper Jelly. For entrees, we enjoyed the Roast Duck with Ginger Peach Sauce and the Veal Grillades with Mushrooms & Cheddar Grits. The Warm Bread Pudding with Toffee Sauce and Pecan Pie were also very good.
The service was good. The added attention from JoAnn Clevenger, Owner and General Manager, was a nice touch.
As for pricing, the Taste of the New Orleans (seven set selections) and the prix fixe menu (selection of four courses) were in the $38 range.
