Ruffino's on the River Grand opening tomorrow in Lafayette


I've heard great things about this place from people who ate at the one in Baton Rouge. This has a better location and building I would assume since it's on the river in River Ranch. I read where he is adding a few more things on the menu that will make more sense in Lafayette. The menu looks amazing with the redfish etc.

Website



I never knew he played O-line for LSU and was an All American

I went to the soft opening. It absolutley delivered.

There's alot of excitement surrounding this opening, I suspect they will do much better than Cochon.

Never asked, never really cared until now I guess, but what exactly is Ruffin to Ruffino's? I thought TJ owned it, just like he did when it was Dinardo's. is Ruffin a figure head, manager, part owner?

Correct. TJM sold the place to them--they are still paying him.

I hope they are holding plenty of Crown Royal. I know that is the drink of choice of Food Mavens in Laffy.

I appreciate Ruffinos for what it is, but it's no Pamplona.
