Restaurant's second location helps revitalize neighborhood

In a town famous for great seafood, Deanie’s Seafood is in a class by itself. Deanie’s is a “scratch house,” meaning everything is made in-house with the best ingredients available.
After taking ownership of the original Deanie’s restaurant and seafood market in 1982 with her late husband Frank, Deanie’s proprietor Barbara “Mrs. Barbara” Chifici opened the second Deanie’s restaurant in 2001 at the corner of Iberville and Dauphine streets in the French Quarter.

Now in its 18th year, Deanie’s Seafood in the French Quarter is a a draw for both locals and tourists. It has become a destination restaurant whose popularity rivals stalwarts of the Quarter including Brennan’s, Arnaud’s, Galatoire’s and Acme Oyster House. The restaurant is managed by son Keith Chifici.
