Baton Rouge Restaurant Week begins today, giving residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy some of the Capital City’s tastiest offerings at irresistible price points. A uniquely crafted, three-course menu begins at $15 per person, with $35 per person as the top billing (Seriously?! I paid more than that for two martinis when living in NYC…literally. And yes, I understand that that confession may be a poor reflection on me).

So which restaurants look most tempting? Well you cannot go wrong at Bistro Byronz, in my opinion. Their blue cheese chips really are that good; and the French-style bistro, with its quaint yet charming atmosphere, is always a go-to for date night. Other than that, I’m thinking I may splurge at one of the top-billed restaurants. After all, when else can you get an app, your choice of steak, fish or duck, and dessert at a place like Stroubes, Doe’s Eat Place or Le Creole? I’ve also been dying to try Nino’s Italian. Owners Elton Hyndman and wife Randee are known for their avid support of the local farm-to-table movement, and I hear their hand-rolled pasta is unsurpassable.
So which restaurants/menus look most appealing to you? If you have a delicious meal at any of Restaurant Week’s 25 participating restaurants, please leave a comment below or tweet me a photo. It may help this indecisive betch determine where to go.
Hope your week is off to a great start! I’ll see you back here Wednesday with a hump day treat.
