New Orlean’s Kitchen

About Pearls

Cajun Creole Cookin’ with a
Heap of Hospitality!

Formed from French roots, livened with Spanish spices, inspired by African vegetables, caribbeanized by West Indian hands, laced with black pepper and pork by the Germans, infiltered with potatoes by the Irish, blasted by garlic and tomatoes by the Italians. New Orleans cuisine is a rich melting pot of influences and ingredients, and Pearl’s embraces the roots of both Cajun (rural) and Creole (city) styles of cooking. We offer authentic and enduring southern specialties like Etouffé, Jambalaya, Oysters Rockefeller and Fried Green Tomatoes, alongside crawfish, shrimp and other fresh seafood. Learn the right way to eat a crawfish, enjoy a New Orleans style Po’ Boy sandwich, or step out and try some blackened alligator!

The Bar

New Orleans is the birthplace of the cocktail. Embracing that tradition, Pearl’s features an array of unique libations including house-steeped Margatinis, seasonal spins on martinis, manhattens and cosmos utilizing house-infused liquors, an extensive Bourbon menu, wines by the glass or bottle, and a fun selection of Louisiana & local micro-brews on tap.

Outdoor Dining

Pearl’s features two outdoor porches; a deck area for guests to enjoy beverages while waiting to be seated, and a covered patio with table service.
