Some folks live and die by the word of local food writers, some could care less. As we look at the choices offered by Brett Anderson of the Picayune, we conclude that its hard to boil down the “top” restaurants in this world class restaurant city since we have so many that are light years […]

Upperline Restaurant-Continues its post-Katrina drive for excellence and hits the mark

23 December 2006

We made reservations for a lovely couple from New York at the Upperline last night. She just retired from years as a modern dancer in a well-known dance company.

Upperline Restaurant one of our favorites and a hit with guests

5 October 2006

For the past five years we have referred guests to Upperline. I can’t recall anyone who did not come back raving about the experience. JoAnn Cleavenger is a master at what she does and with her outstanding crew in front of the house and in the kitchen, one can be assured of an evening to […]
