Israeli
Shaya restaurant marries Israeli staples with Southern flavors and modern techniques, striking a balance between innovation and tradition. Shaya approaches Israeli cuisine as a grand mosaic, drawing influence and inspiration from North Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Turkey and Greece. The contemporary menu reflects the ongoing evolution of Israeli food and celebrates the abundance of Louisiana. Shaya highlights seasonal, responsibly- and locally-sourced ingredients.

The wood-fire oven is central to both the menu and the dining experience, from the incredible homemade, wood-fired pita to vegetable-centric small plates and heartier entrees. Many of the dishes on the diverse menu are meant to be shared and enjoyed throughout many courses.

    Amazing meal at this gem of a restaurant. Service was outstanding and every dish we ordered blew our minds. We were a group of four and ordered 5 small dishes and 2 entrees to share and were stuffed. Shared 2 dessert to end the meal. Truly a special place

    Everything was phenomenal- loved the hummus and never-ending hot fluffy pita. Halloumi and fattoush was delicious and our dessert was amazing - caramelized and savory. Also the tea was fantastic - don’t miss it
