Guidebook for Zachary

Food Scene
This restaurant is at the entrance to our neighborhood, so it’s just a quick drive (or walk!) away. Think intimate French bistro meets Louisiana. This place has great food, some nice wine and cocktail selections, and a great atmosphere. They also have some vegan and vegetarian options, which you won’t come across that often in Baton Rouge. (Don’t worry, they have plenty of yummy “regular” options, too.)

Looking for a place to grab a beer and watch the big game? This is it. They have TVs literally everywhere. The food here is always yummy, too. They offer more of what you’d imagine when you think of Louisiana eats (boudin balls, crawfish, red beans & rice, the works). They also offer a couple of vegetarian options.

From plays, to concerts, to stand-up comedy, this event center has it all. Our favorite is The Family Dinner Comedy Troupe. They perform improv comedy shows (think Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and movie spoof nights, where they dub over your favorite comedy movies with hilariously witty and sarcastic comments.
