Chef Justin Devillier

Originally from South Orange County, Chef Justin Devillier spent his youth fishing and diving for the freshest local seafood. Shortly after his move to New Orleans in 2003, Chef Justin joined La Petite Grocery on Magazine Street. Devillier made major contributions in the rebuild of La Petite Grocery after Hurricane Katrina devastated the New Orleans community. Chef Justin’s involvement with La Petite Grocery grew over the years when he was promoted to Executive Chef in 2007, and then purchased the establishment in 2010.

Awards and accolades include finalist for the James Beard Award of “Best Chef: South” in 2012, 2013, and 2014, and New Orleans Magazine’s “Chef of the Year” in 2014. Chef Justin Devillier was also a contestant on Bravo’s “Top Chef”.
