Refined Creole fare in an 1877 townhouse

The Zagat Review
"The perfect hostess" , owner JoAnn Clevenger, "greets everyone as though she has known them for life" as she presides "serenely" over this Uptown bistro, which draws a "local" following with its "superb" , "well-prepared" Contemporary Louisiana fare; the "small, antique" townhouse rooms are lined with the owner's "personal collection" of local art, adding to its idiosyncratic "charm."

Upperline is the real deal. Great regional food done right, perfect service, beautiful artwork, and a wonderful owner with charming, heartening stories. The whole experience demonstrates her conviction that restaurants play a critical role in our social fabric. Eat here and be reminded of the importance of sharing a meal with others.

Stopped at upperline for a late romantic dinner based on the recommendation of a local tour guide. We were not disappointed. The hostess and owner was so personable and gave us a list of her own recommendations. The food was very good, we did prix fixe which is the best deal to try a bunch on items. The stars of the show were the fried green tomato with shrimp remoulade appetizer and the duck with garlic port. The sauces were out of this world and they brought over bread to get every drop. Great special occasion restaurant with adorable decor.

I sought the restaurant out because it is owned by the family of a college friend. I had no idea when I came to town that it would be such a great meal. JoAnn Clevenger was a gracious host, stopping by the table to talk about the restaurant, its art, and its history. She also have recommendations for other activities and restaurants in town. For the food, I had the roast duck with garlic port sauce. Wow. So wonderful. I also liked the side sweet potatoes, which is odd because I usually hate sweet potatoes. This is definitely worth checking out.
