| Food and Drink Board|| New Place Near Kenilworth/Matherne's - McVick on 3/12/14 at 10:16 pm|
After driving Highland the other day, I noticed a new sign for Tigre. After doing a little digging, I found out that this was a restaurant from a while ago (moved here in 2010). Therefore, this turned out to be an old sign that Monjuni's must have covered up when they moved in.
Now, I asked aro...

Yes, I am aware that we are in the Lenten period and most places will have a seafood menu. However, I am looking for a solid seafood place in Baton Rouge to take a couple from out-of-town. Normally I would fight the crowd at Sammy (purely out of convenience and location), but probably looking for ...

What makes Vermont the posterchild for yuppiness? I went to school in VT and grew up just across the border, and the yuppiness factor is limited to one small area of the state. Not a lot of young, urban corporate types can be found in Burlington due to a lack of job opportunities and corporations.
