In 1922, Michael Langenstein and his two sons, George and Richard, started a small corner grocery store in Uptown New Orleans. Little did they know that Langenstein’s would grow to become the go-to spot for generations of food lovers offering prepared New Orleans’ delicacies, gourmet items and everyday grocery needs.

Langenstein’s is not only the oldest independent full service grocery store in New Orleans, but also a fifth-generation independent, family owned and operated business with locations in Uptown New Orleans, Old Metairie and River Ridge.

In 2022, Langenstein’s celebrated is centennial year. After 100 years, Langenstein’s remains committed to the Greater New Orleans community.
