La Petite Grocery’s Justin Devillier to open French Quarter restaurant 

It is my hope that this becomes the revival of a new world-class restaurant culture in the upper Quarter. So few of those restaurants in the Quarter* really aspire to satisfy the palate of those locals who know great food and great service and to not pander to the millions of tennis-shod, Mickey-Mouse tank-wearing visitors who search for items “not spicy” or “with regular food” (both phrases people have given me when I stopped to aid them and asked them what they were looking for in terms of food). Let’s renew the Quarter by creating the best food and best drink rather than the race to the bottom that has been the situation since Croissant D’Or’s Maurice retired from baking croissants, Anne Kearney sold Peristyle and went back to Ohio and Bella Luna’s owners took off for Manchac.

• With respect to Angeline, Sylvain, Doris Metropolitan and the still-cool Bayona.
