Petra's is one of the few fine dining restaurants serving the Old Metairie
(LA) area for seven years.T. J. Qutob, owner and executive chef, brings his
17 years of local restaurant expertise and his Mediteranean background to the dishes of Petra's, named after his birthplace. Now, T. J. has re-tooled his menu to focus on Italian and Continental specialties.

Petra's has seating for 100 diners among the main dining room, two private
dining rooms (a large and a small), plus 5 intimate, curtained booths - found in discriminating restaurants of yesteryear.

In honor of the menu shift, Petra's has undergone an entire new facelift - from the inviting, impressionistic land and seascapes captured by a local artist on the exterior to a traditional columned entrance to the main dining room, painted a seafoam mint to an expanded bar area awash with opulent marble accompanied by rich tones of wood and ochre.

Petra's has an ample parking lot directly in front of the restaurant but
offers free valet service for those special occasions.
