Hard work, dedication, and years of fine tuning recipes are rewarded with customer loyalty! This past April, the Chifici family celebrated their 35th anniversary as owners/operators of Deanie’s Seafood Restaurant in Bucktown, with Deanie’s Seafood in the French Quarter now in its 16th year of operations. Over the past few decades, we have strived to deliver a truly authentic dining experience for our patrons. Once again, NOLA has selected Deanie’s as New Orleans’ Best Seafood Restaurants! Deanie’s Seafood is proud to share our cultivated and treasured family recipes with our customers, who keep coming back year after year.
