Who benefits from Restaurant Week?
Restaurant Week Baton Rouge is a great way for customers to try new restaurants, or perhaps ones they have not visited in a while, at a fraction of the normal cost. Mid-January is typically a slower time of year for restaurants and this event aims to bring much needed traffic through their doors. In addition, the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank will receive a $5,000 charitable donation on behalf of all the participants. So not only are you getting a great value at these restaurants, you're helping out a great charity as well.

Should I make reservations?
Absolutely. Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made directly from this website for those restaurants who accept the OpenTable interface. Make sure to take advantage of the "Tell a Friend" feature for a convenient way to email your fellow diners and plan a night out.

If I don't want to eat off the fixed price menu, can I order off the regular menu?
All restaurants are encouraged to allow guests to order off of their normal menu (although at regular prices) if they wish.


The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank is dedicated to feeding hungry people by collecting and distributing food and grocery products, advocating for hunger-relief programs, and collaborating with others who address basic human needs. Restaurant Week Baton Rouge will donate $5,000 from each Restaurant Week which provides 25,000 meals to those in need.
