The Messina name was first introduced to the food service industry in June of 1961, when Andy Messina fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning a restaurant with his father. Andy Messina’s Restaurant and Catering Company, located in Kenner, Louisiana, was only the beginning for the Messina family. Andy, and his wife, Isabelle, operated the restaurant, which became famous for its Italian family recipes and classic New Orleans seafood dishes, for over 40 years.
The menu selection at Messina’s will feature a blend of South Louisiana style Creole cooking, Italian inspired dishes and Florida’s finest seafood. Some old Messina’s favorites like baby veal spedindi will be featured, as well as new creations such as penne pasta jambalaya and Five Star offerings like blue cheese filet"s, surf and turf, pan seared redfish over Gouda grit cake topped with Oysters Rockefeller.
Family friendly, casual dining with a Five Star Flair will set Messina’s apart from any restaurant on 30-A.
