The design of this upbeat and casual dining venue tastefully blends traditional with contemporary. Desire features a raw oyster bar where expert shuckers prepare fresh Gulf oysters any way you like them – chargrilled, on the half shell and more. Our Executive Chef is excited for you to try the extensive menu including signature dishes like our Shrimp & Grits, the “Creole Trio” (jambalaya, red beans and rice, and gumbo), po’boys, and the Crawfish and Fried Green Tomato Benedict. Come for oysters, stay for the menu!
