The Pearl Shreveport opens to the public

Robert and Trudie Shaver, the previous proprietors of Shaver’s Crawfish & Catering, have decided to end their retirement and embark on a new culinary venture in Shreveport called The Pearl. This fresh establishment is set to occupy the former La Madeleine restaurant located at 6871 Fern Ave.

History of The Pearl Shreveport

Having dedicated nearly three decades to Shaver’s Crawfish & Catering, the Shaver’s eventually handed over the reins to Robert’s brother and business partner a few years back. Now, Robert’s lifelong dream of owning a seafood restaurant is becoming a reality with the inception of The Pearl Shreveport.
