NEW ORLEANS—April 3, 2014—Deanie’s Seafood Restaurants and Seafood Market announces it is the first restaurant and seafood market in the Greater New Orleans region to have earned Louisiana Wild Seafood Certification, guaranteeing our customers and patrons that the seafood they enjoy is natural, sustainable and sourced from Louisiana waters.
The voluntary Louisiana Seafood Certification Program guarantees that seafood bearing the “Certified Authentic Louisiana Wild Seafood” label is caught in the Gulf of Mexico or Gulf Coast state waters by Louisiana licensed fishermen and is landed, processed, and packaged in Louisiana.
Serving more than one million diners a year, Deanie’s is recognized as one of the best seafood restaurants in New Orleans and is nationally known for offering fresh Louisiana seafood prepared with Deanie’s Signature Creole Seasonings, including fresh and fried Oysters, Shrimp, Blue Crab, and Crawfish.
“Deanie’s Seafood has prided itself on serving fresh Louisiana seafood for over 50 years, and we are grateful to the fishing industry that allows us to continue to serve the best seafood in the country,” said Deanie’s Seafood Proprietor Barbara Chifici. “We were eager to enroll in the Louisiana Wild Seafood program, which lets consumers know they’re getting authentic Louisiana seafood that is held to the highest standards in the world.”
Deanie’s Seafood operates two restaurants in the New Orleans area–its original restaurant and seafood market in Bucktown and a second restaurant in the French Quarter–and an online retail shop, ShopDeanies.com, that ships fresh Louisiana seafood and prepared items to anywhere in the continental United States.
The Louisiana Seafood Certification program was established through a partnership with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion and Marketing Board and Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries to ensure the integrity of Louisiana seafood and build a brand known for fresh flavor, consistent quality and safety. Participation is open to all fishermen, docks, dealers, processors, grocers and restaurants who meet the program requirements.
