As for our fried items, they unfortunately do not transfer and hold up well over longer periods of time. These and most of our po’boy sandwiches are not recommended for catering situation.

About our batter

The Little Jewel of New Orleans exclusively uses the traditional seasoned A.P. flour/corn meal/corn flour (aka “3-2-1”) batter on our fried seafood. While in recent years many establishments (even back home in New Orleans have elected to the single A.P. flour dredge, we favor a more traditional (if slightly more expensive) method. Our batters are seasoned and, in our opinion, moderately so. If a less spicy product is desired, simply ask to hold the hot sauce.

While reasonable customer requests are always honored, no annoying substitutions please.

Menu prices are subject to change without notice on this website.

About Us...

The Little Jewel of New Orleans Grocery and Deli is a DTLA based Southern market and delicatessen, which draws its influence from the rich and varied culinary traditions of the City of New Orleans. Catering to an eclectic clientele, our market strives to make available many of the popular as well as "harder to find" items from Louisiana (and the South in general), while offering everyday convenience items to the public at large.

Authenticity is paramount at the Little Jewel of New Orleans, and all of our sausages and cooking meats are made in-house (Boudin, Andouille, Chaurice, Hot Sausage and Tasso) , as are our baked goods, desserts, and dressings. Regional Spices and Sauces, Zapp's Potato Chips, Camellia Beans, Community and Cafe du Monde Coffees, Blue Plate Mayonnaise, and a host of other Crescent City favorites are all available.

So come on down to Old Chinatown to the striped green and white awning at 207 Ord St. (between Spring and New High), where the music is ALWAYS PLAYING, and Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler!
