  • Neighbourhood gem
  • Good for special occasions
  • Charming
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.

    The best mediterranean food I've ever had! The lamb and shrimp kabobs were excellent. The fresh bread was delicious but the star of the show was the sujuk pide.

    An absolute must visit spot. We are from Florida and never miss a stop at Shaya when visiting family in town. Just wishing for the day they open a second location down in St. Petersburg, FL so we don’t have to travel so far!
