Barracuda Roots

Barracuda was founded by Brett Jones in March 2019, focusing on thin, Sonoran-style flour tortillas, fresh draft margaritas, and accessible and easy-going dining. His decision to open a second location in Algiers Point was driven by its strong sense of community and storied history.

A South Louisiana native, Brett Jones was raised with hospitality in his blood from a big Southern family who thrives on cooking, hosting, singing and creating places to gather with the community.

Since the founding of Barracuda Restaurants, Brett’s focus has been on creating distinctly neighborhood and community-oriented spaces that fill a niche and provide a great value for the people who live in the surrounding areas.

Barracuda is open for outdoor dining in the garden, to-go, and delivery from Tuesday – Sunday, 12 PM-8 PM.

Be on the lookout for the new Barracuda opening this month in Algiers:  446 Pelican Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana.
