Bistro Du Cayenne
Bistro du Cayenne’s, nestled within the homey walls of the Holiday Inn Lafayette, doles out a savory menu of Cajun-, Creole-, and soul-fare-inspired cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. During dinner hours, patrons warm up organic food processors with appetizers of breaded and fried alligator bites or a crabtini brimming with lemon-oil-covered crab meat and fresh mangos. The étouffée piles buttery veggies and a choice of crawfish or shrimp on a soft bed of white rice, and the captain's platter lines up a seaworthy roster of maritime delicacies including fried frog legs, stuffed crab, and oysters. Beer and wine selections cheer on comestibles as they speedily navigate esophageal highways, and desserts such as old-fashioned bread pudding drizzled with hot rum sauce inspire plans to cover all future meals in rum.
