Upperline on HBO's Treme

UPRLNtremeLOGOThe cast and crew from David Simon’s new series “Treme” recently filmed at Upperline. The scene (from an episode written by local author Lolis Eric Elie) featured Creighton Bernette (John Goodman) and wife ToniĀ  (Melissa Leo) running into a table full of literary luminaries, including Roy Blount, Jr, novelist Tom Franklin and poet Beth Ann Fennelly.

JoAnn seats the couple with her traditional “Bon appetit…”

The restaurant is thrilled to be included in Mr. Simon’s inaugural season of this instant New Orleans classic.
