I was reading about the show last night. Something like 38 or the 83 restaurants featured on the show have closed down. Not the best success rate.

Pinetta's would be a good candidate

Fleur de Lis is always packed. Part of its charm is that it is so old school. Pinetta's seems to be doing well, however. We went a couple of months ago on a Friday night and had to wait 20-30 minutes for a table. Usually, the sorts of places that are on the show are losing money. Plus, Pinetta's is so damn old, you know the rent is low.
I dunno, maybe Lava Cantina? The food there is awful and I don't think they do much business.

You can eliminate 80% of the restaurants just by crossing off the chains.



That's sad Baton Rouge.

No reason for that place to not be kicking arse right now, Good location, good facilities , get in there and clean it up, modernize the menu and decor, get some real management, and stop living off of a name that was great 20 years ago

Remember this is a national entertainment show with a ready-made agenda. Check the clue in the OP

Just sayin'...
