It's that time of year again, your favorite time of year, Restaurant Week! It's a time to try new restaurants or visit old favorites, give back to our city, and of course, treat yo'self.
DIG Magazine is teaming up with Table Fresh in 2017 to bring Baton Rouge diners the largest, week-long dining experience yet. For those who don't know the terms of Restaurant Week, it is quite simple. Over fifty of the best restaurants in Baton Rouge chose from select price points between $15-$35 to build their menu. Each menu consists of three courses, typically an appetizer, entree and a dessert. Each restaurant will give diners two to three unique options per course. With fifty-four participating locations, the options are endless.
What are those must-try restaurants this year? That's a tough one!
A top pick at the $15 price point is Voodoo BBQ & Grill on Nicholson, serving up a slow smoked BBQ platter! Add some Voodoo cheesy fries with that, yum!
At The Londoner, for just $20, you can choose from some pretty mouthwatering entrees, but their fish and chips plate might take the gold!
DIG has been eyeballing Eliza Restaurant & Bar's restaurant week menu for weeks now. This brand new restaurant is featuring a grilled black drum and a sirloin strip steak, among other great plates from their $25 menu.
On the $30 menu, we are excited to see what Chef DeWitt will whip up for his first Restaurant Week at Galatoire's. Our pick, try the deviled duck egg and fried green tomato appetizer with the seared scallops for your entree.
Who doesn't love a great steak? We have our hands tied when it comes to the $35 price point. We love Doe's Eat Place and Sullivan's but we are racing to make our reservations at Texas de Brazil. The soup, salad, and steak dinner during Restaurant Week is just $35!
You don't want to miss this week! January 23-28, 2017. Follow @VisitBatonRouge on Twitter for your chance to win Restaurant Week gift cards and be sure to hashtag #EatBR during all of your Restaurant Week taste-testing!
