When most people hear ‘Louisiana,’ they probably imagine Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras in New Orleans, or perhaps a guy battling an agitated alligator on Swamp People. However, follow the Mississippi River north, to Baton Rouge, and allow the capital city’s culinary scene to forever change how you think about the boot of America. From the best South Louisiana cuisine to some of the best steaks ever plated, Baton Rouge has it all, here’s some of the best.
If you are just looking for a good steak in a comfortable environment, Sullivan’s is revered for its prime cuts of beef, and fantastic piano bar, maintaining a lively and relaxed atmosphere. To enjoy the full experience, have dinner and drinks in the lounge area. Order one of the many fine steaks and a side of the three cheese mac. Add crab legs or a lobster tail to take your meal to the next level – a scrumptiously buttery delight. For dessert, the crème brulee is a delectably light finish after a heavy meal. Hang around and listen to the magical sounds from the past while enjoying a few of the fine cocktails available.

Mansurs takes fine dining in Baton Rouge to a different level. The Cajun inspired dishes of executive chef Chris Motto could be the best in the capital city. Try one of their delectable fish entrees, or the shrimp and chicken pasta, and a cup of brie crabmeat bisque. Order the “all that jazz” to get a trio of reality-altering soups. Monday through Saturday, customers enjoy dinner while being serenaded by the exquisite talents of pianist Ms. Jo Garner.
