Lafayette has the Cajun flavors you crave, along with the freshest in Louisiana seafood, and always a little something unexpected. Homegrown chefs are putting an inventive spin on time-honored recipes with the freshest local ingredients. A distinct culinary identity as the heart of Cajun country, steeped in tradition, merges with a new generation making it an incredible place to eat. From white tablecloth to white paper napkin, all of it is incredible.
One summer-long culinary celebration that has people smiling from ear to ear is Eat Lafayette, which takes place from June through September. Locals and visitors alike are invited to manger at over 100 locations of the area’s well known and not so well known locally owned eateries to celebrate Lafayette as one of the tastiest towns of the South.
To celebrate the 13th anniversary, we wanted to get back to the essence of what Eat Lafayette is all about— supporting our locally owned restaurants. It’s no secret Lafayette’s cuisine is as rich as its cultural history, hence the many awards voting us the tastiest town of the south. Now it’s time for you to make a choice. Choose local.
Many Upper Lafayette restaurants participate in Eat Lafayette and this is your time to check out delicious food, offered by locally owned establishments. Bon Appetit!
