Alon Shaya

Shaya, New Orleans

The phrase “New Orleans cuisine” may not conjure visions of hummus with harissa and lamb ragù in lieu of classic Creole fare. Yet some of the city’s most coveted tables are at Alon Shaya’s eponymous eatery, where he blends the indigenous flavors of Israel with Louisiana culinary traditions—garnering widespread acclaim, including our 2016 medallion for Best New Restaurant.
