Two years of design and development went into Tsunami before sisters Leah Simon and Michele Ezell along with husband Sean, opened its doors in January of 2000.

Tsunami’s Lafayette property was the first of the two. Four years later a second location in Baton Rouge was opened. And in 2017, opening in New Orleans. All finding homes in the center of art and culture in Downtown communities.

Tsunami's menu focuses on the fresh seafood and diverse dishes. Our menu has remained water cooler conversation with its Japanese and Eastern flare.
