NOLA Caye combines New Orleans’ charm, culture and its genuine sense of hospitality with bold, fresh Caribbean flavors. The word "CAYE" eludes to a small island giving the restaurant's name a literal translation of "New Orleans Island" or "Isle of New Orleans." Our menu offers Crispy Shrimp Tacos, Tuna Ceviche, Freshly Shucked Oysters, Red Curry Shrimp, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Cuban Sandwich, Ginger Salmon, Jamaican Jerk Fish and a Strip Steak with chimichurri sauce.Save room for dessert so you don’t miss out on our Banana Crème Pie, Oreo Ice Cream Sandwich, Key Lime Pie or Tres Leches.Our signature cocktails include “Climate Change” a hibiscus infused margarita with a fiery three-chili ice ball providing the catch phrase: “the longer you wait….the hotter it gets” Also try our “Bloody Jerk” which contains our house-made Bloody Mary mix. We dare say it’s the best version of a Bloody Mary New Orleans has to offer.

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
