Pizza Place

“Think Subway, but with pizza. You can choose a pizza from the menu, or create your own. This place offers Daiya dairy-free cheese, if you want/need to avoid dairy. You can also grab a salad or a beer with your meal. This is a great place to stop for a quick lunch.”

“This restaurant is at the entrance to our neighborhood, so it’s just a quick drive (or walk!) away. Think intimate French bistro meets Louisiana. This place has great food, some nice wine and cocktail selections, and a great atmosphere. They also have some vegan and vegetarian options, which you won’t come across that often in Baton Rouge. (Don’t worry, they have plenty of yummy “regular” options, too.) ”

Cajun / Creole Restaurant

“Looking for a place to grab a beer and watch the big game? This is it. They have TVs literally everywhere. The food here is always yummy, too. They offer more of what you’d imagine when you think of Louisiana eats (boudin balls, crawfish, red beans & rice, the works). They also offer a couple of vegetarian options. ”
