The IND Eats Dining Guide is published twice a year with the goal of creating a comprehensive listing featuring local restaurants in Lafayette and surrounding Acadiana to help diners with an envie discover a dish that’s sure to hit the spot. You can find the guide on IND Monthly racks around town, at local restaurants or our downtown Lafayette office. Pick up a copy and always be in the know when hunger strikes.
In this issue we added a category called On the Geaux, featuring chefs who approach the restaurant business a little differently than most by serving great meals from a food truck. They are mobile so their physical address may be hard to pin down, but they are reliable about posting daily locations to social media sites. Be sure you’re following your favorite trucks because they might be on a curb near you.
And, if you’re someone who is on the go, the IND Eats Dining Guide can always be at your fingertips by using our online search tool, which allows readers to search A-Z listings by restaurants or categories. Each listing includes a map link, making it even easier to figure out where you’re headed for your next meal. Find the online guide at www.theind.com/dining. The online version also links to restaurant websites.
This issue’s cover story is all about a new spin on brunch — from Jefferson Street Pub’s Saturday vinyl version to Brick & Spoon’s take featuring the Big Spoon Bloody Mary, the comforts of pancakes, Sunday beverages and conversation with friends abound.
