re: On my way to Beausoliel REVIEW ADDED

The not having mint seems odd.

It really did to me, too. She said something about their "plant going south". Which...

Our mint is still about to take over one of our herb beds. How did theirs "go south" in such a quick time frame that they could not replace it? Go to Cleggs and buy a mint plant. Or...buy some at Whole Foods to get through the night. That was odd. I was happy they had blueberries for my drink!

They can walk out the front door, take a right and walk about fifty paces and get all of those items at Calvins. They don't even have to cross Corporate and Jefferson.

Exactly. Agree with both of y'all. That just doesn't make any sense to me.

Right. And Calvins was open til 9! We checked in case we needed some chicken salad after we left.

We have put the place on the back burner for now for the reasons above. Many of my friends feel the same way.



I loved Beausoleil the first 2-3 times I went, but I went recently for lunch and was not as much impressed. I think the restaurant is still one of the best Baton Rouge has to offer (not that that's saying much), but I do know what you mean.

The lunch menu did not stand out to me nearly as much as the dinner one does.

Also, a couple times ago when I went, they were out of both pork cheek and mussels as well.

I salute Beausoliel for at least putting it on the menu and preparing it well


For sure. My last post sounds almost like bashing, and that isn't the case at all. I love Beausoleil.

It sounds like the chef there has drive, so I'd just love to see a seasonal menu at least. I'm interested in what he can do. Items being mentioned here are items I ate on my very first visit which was well over a year ago.
