NEW ORLEANS (press release) – It is time to celebrate New Orleans’ oldest, full-service grocery store – Langenstein’s. The store’s 100-year-celebration is scheduled for Thursday, April 21 at Langenstein’s Uptown. 

Bring a chair and come celebrate while listening to the sounds of Delfeayo Marsalis & the Uptown Jazz Orchestra. A free event with party snacks and spirits provided by Langenstein’s & its partners. 

Langenstein’s is New Orleans’ oldest grocery store serving catering & local specialties since 1922. When Michael Langenstein and his sons, George and Richard, opened Langenstein’s supermarket in the early 1920’s, their goal was to carry the best meat and seafood in New Orleans. Little did they know that their small corner grocery store would grow to become one of New Orleans’ finest food markets serving both locals and visitors alike. In 1954, the grocery store outgrew the original storefront and relocated from 1300 Arabella Street, presently the home of Prytania Wine & Spirits and also run by the Lanaux family, to 1330 Arabella Street, where Langenstein’s still is today. In 1994 with the success of the Uptown store, Langenstein’s opened a second location in Metairie. And in 2015, River Ridge became home to the third and newest location of Langenstein’s. The new location anchors a new 47,000-square-foot “Langenstein’s Center” shopping center at the corner of Sauve Road and Jefferson Highway in River Ridge.

All Langenstein’s locations continue to serve the Greater New Orleans area and offer a complete line of homemade New Orleans specialties such as Crawfish Etouffee and Bisque, Seafood Gumbo, Grillades, Red Beans and Rice and countless others. Now 100 years later, Langenstein’s is a 5th generation owned and operated business, proudly holding true to its original ideals, while still adapting to the needs and suggestions of their loyal customers.
