Restaurants in Baton Rouge, LA

Northwest of New Orleans on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River, Baton Rouge — Louisiana’s capital — is a wellspring of Cajun food: boudin sausage, crawfish pie, gumbo, po boys, and etouffes all are standard menu items. Not all the good eats are in restaurants. In fact, some of the most delicious dishes are sold from butcher-shop counters and from take-out stands and convenience stores. The little-appreciated influence of Italian food in southern Louisiana can be savored at Anthony’s Italian Deli and at Cannatella Grocery, the latter famous for its muffuletta.
