Deanie’s Seafood Restaurant plans to unleash more of that boiled and fried goodness for seafood lovers Uptown. The popular Bucktown seafood restaurant plans to open a new location on Magazine Street this December.

The restaurant’s new home at 2200 Magazine Street previously housed Charcoal’s Gourmet Burger Bar before it closed last spring. Deanie’s on Magazine will be the restaurant’s third location.

The new 6,000-square-foot restaurant will feature many of Deanie’s standard dishes including fried seafood, po-boys, seasonal boiled seafood like boiled crawfish, shrimp and Louisiana blue crab, Crawfish Étouffée, New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp and seafood salads. Deanie’s on Magazine also will offer an oyster bar dedicated to raw and chargrilled Louisiana oysters and new items such as New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp tacos and catfish sliders.

The two-story building that will house Deanie’s on Magazine features a spacious wrap-around balcony for outdoor dining with a nice view of Uptown and the New Orleans skyline. The restaurant seats approximately 200 guests.

Owner and general manager of the new Deanie’s location Chandra Chifici-Scarber says she excited about the move to the Uptown neighborhood.

“Uptown is a quintessential New Orleans neighborhood, much like Bucktown and the French Quarter. It’s a diverse, eclectic neighborhood, and we think Deanie’s Seafood will be a nice addition,” Chifici-Scarber said.

“We are really excited about this new location. It just felt like the right time, and there’s a lot going on in the area,” Chifici-Scarber said.

The original Deanie’s Restaurant and Seafood Market, now located at 1713 Lake Ave., in Metairie, has been a Bucktown staple for more than 50 years. Deanie’s Seafood has been owned and operated since 1980 by the Chifici Family and proprietor Barbara Chifici. The family celebrated their 35th anniversary as owners/operators of Deanie’s Seafood in Bucktown in April.
