Best Places to Eat – Baton Rouge

Louisiana is known for two things, food and festivals.

There is never a shortage of food from any culture or way of life.

Before digging to deep into the food category I must say that every state is unique and the quality of food can vary drastically from area to area. This is common as culture and availability of fresh ingredients change as you travel from coast to coast and inland.

Before listing my favorite places to fill the belly, I would like to give credit to Baton Rouge for “Restaurant Week”. Keep an eye and ear open for any mention of this during the spring and fall. Its an event where the majority of the top restaurants throughout Baton Rouge showcase their favorite dishes at a discount price. Its perfect for date night! Remember, most of the places below participate in Restaurant Week. If you plan on dining out during this time, we highly recommend making reservations as it is an extremely sought after time.

Now for the good part, below we will list some of the best places to eat in or near Baton Rouge.
