Baton Rouge Restaurant Review

: Downtown has its share of chain restaurants, but Baton Rouge offers something that others don’t: an outdoor patio with tables that double as front row seats for shows during Montreal’s international jazz and film festivals. The place is packed on weekends with tourists, office workers and happy hour crowds there for the hefty platters of food. Be sure to try the Baton Rouge burger with melted Monterey Jack cheese, bacon and Dijonnaise sauce and choose one of many side dishes, such as hot cinnamon apples or a mountain of thin, spicy french fries. The Baton Rouge Club is the way to go for those with a hankering for poultry --- the sandwich encloses a hefty hunk of chicken that’s been marinated in lime juice, mustard, herbs and oil. The price is steep but worth every penny. Soft drinks and coffee are also pricey, but there is an alternative; patrons can skip the expensive espressos in favor of ice cream cocktails such as the Frozen Mudslide.
