Louisiana is famous for its food, and Baton Rouge has plenty of good stuff. Seafood is on every menu and often excellent. One caveat, though, is that most restaurants are closed on Sunday evening in this Catholic state.

Bellue's Cajun Cusine - I rode my bike by this place and it looked interesting. Looking at their website now, I guess it's more of a grocery store than a restaurant, but might be a notable spot for picking up cajun foods. Right next door to Bellue's Welding. (-: —Tobin LTK Seafood - large place up on Scenic Highway by the refinery; the smell of boiled seafood actually overwhelms the scent of refined petroleum!
