Upperline is my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. I admit to being extremely biased about the place, because Rachel and I are always treated like royalty whenever we go there. Jo Ann Clevenger is a wonderful, generous lady, and she’s got the most talented and gentle man, Kenny Smith as an executive chef. Upperline is also an extremely fun restaurant just to explore and look at the artwork, as Jo Ann has an art collection featuring local artists that rivals the Ogden museum.
