EatLafayette is a celebration of the best restaurants the Hub City has to offer and it happens at this time every year. I have the terrible job of visiting a lot of these local favorites. Who am I kidding? Learning the stories and traditions behind some of Lafayette's best dishes makes my job the best in the world.

This week, we had a very generous sampling of some favorites at Ground Pat’i on Kaliste Saloom. The location, which  conveniently located in the Target parking lot, had a fresh menu with more than 50 seafood options. If you visit this weekend, ask for the EatLafayette special which is FREE order of handmade onion rings with the purchase of an entree.
