Born in New Orleans in 1977, Shanahan's brings the bayou to Forest Park via spicy seafood dishes and creole classics. Their daily menu features red beans and rice with sausage, chicken and andouille jambalaya, and the King Rex steak platter, with blackened rib eye, fresh crabmeat, and a red pepper–jalapeño hollandaise. Talking about the food, owner Tim Shanahan told the Forest Park Review in 2010, “It's gourmet, as opposed to Cajun, which is more family-style. They both utilize the same ingredients, Creole is just a higher level of cooking.” Monthly Cajun festivals give chefs a chance to parade essential ingredients such as garlic, shrimps, and oysters, or pay tribute to Shanahan's Irish roots without constructing a St. Paddy’s day float out of corned beef.
