Tigertown eats

Posted By on Tue, Oct 16, 2007 at 8:34 AM


For folks who might be heading to Baton Rouge (a football game in November looms large, maybe), ARTiger (aka Tonya Smith) provides an entry in our reader photo contest for a couple of her favorite places. Her report:

I went to the motherland - Baton Rouge - this weekend for a family birthday party.

Brought back two places for Razorback fans to visit when they go to red stick for the game after Thanksgiving - Louie's, on State Street near LSU, and Fleur de Lis, on Government near the Jefferson intersection. Both restaurants are long-time family favorites.

Louie's specialty (at top)  is loaded hash browns. Their omelets are great also.

Fleur de Lis (below) specializes in pizza - the BEST!!! I can't find anything like it in Baton Rouge with thin crust, light on the sauce and lots of toppings. Stick with the Around the World.


My question: What's the latest on my BR favorite from the 1960s -- the Pastime Lounge. I think it's still in business. I guess the Three Coins, memorable to me for a variety of reasons, is long gone.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
