The Original Owners of Shaver’s Catering Are Bringing Something Fresh to the Shreveport Seafood and Brunch Scene.

Welcome, The Pearl to Shreveport. Since Trudie and Robert Shaver's genre of food has been Southern soul food and seafood for almost 30 years they wanted a relative type of cuisine. So they decided to make it more elevated and polished. Val Benn has been tapped as the Executive Chef.

According to The Pearl's Chef Val Benn, the restaurant will "have a whole cold bar stocked with fresh oysters and other varieties of seafood as well that you can sit at the cold bar and watch it be prepared." Chef Val added that they want to be a more affordable restaurant so everyone in the area is able to enjoy The Pearl.
