Dining in Jefferson Parish Louisiana

Dining is an experience of the senses! Taste the Cajun flavor, tease your taste buds with the aroma of Creole gumbo and etouffée, ‘pinch the tail' of a Louisiana crawfish, delight in the taste and sound ‘cracking' crab claws; and watch Louisiana chef's prepare unique dishes featuring oysters, trout, redfish, alligator, and turtle.

Jefferson Parish offers the freshest of seafood, purchased from the farmers' and fisheries' markets or prepared at area restaurants.  

Jefferson Parish Louisiana Oyster Trail

The Jefferson Parish Louisiana Oyster Trail is an experience focusing on Jefferson Parish restaurants serving Louisiana Oysters! Visitors and locals alike will experience the local flavor, and as “lagniappe” (a little something extra) get to enjoy the whimsy of each participating restaurant’s 3-foot tall oyster sculpture hand-painted with the flare of a local artist!  For further details on the program, please click here to be redirected to
