Eat Lafayette 2013
You know that person who walks into a party and grabs everyone’s attention without saying anything? The same one who everyone is whispering about and smiling over their drinks? Yeah, that’s called swagger, and that what Lafayette’s food scene has right now.
It’s kinda like that scene in “Stir Crazy” where Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder first walk into prison.
Lafayette’s most recent feathers in its cap includes Rand McNally’s 2012 Best of the Road—Small Towns, and Southern Living’s 2012 Tastiest Town of the South. Not to mention a visit from Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations TV show as well as Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods.
To quote a line from the above mentioned movie, “That’s right we bad…we bad…uh huh…uh huh.”
Every year from June 17th to September 2nd Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission brings us their Eat Lafayette campaign. The campaign is designed to showcase locally owned restaurants, and this year there are 73 establishments featured.
With so many restaurants to choose from you can be assured to find something you love, and something you have never tried before. Greek, Italian, Indian, Mexican, Lebanese, Bar-B-Que, Gastropub, Cuban, Bakeries, Food Trucks and of course Cajun in all of its glory can be found throughout the list.
Be sure to visit Eat Lafayette’s official website for a complete list of the restaurants participating, as well as specials for you to take advantage of during the campaign. This is going to be another great year to Eat Lafayette, so get on out there and tell them that I sent you.
Oh, do yourself a favor and try something and someplace different. Lafayette’s local restaurateurs can’t wait to show you the best of what they have to offer. Let me know your faves and raves so we can share them with everyone else.
