Photo du Jour: Galatoire's . . . a la Baton Rouge
How disturbing is this picture? Galatoire's has opened a location in Baton Rouge--in where else but a strip mall. Actually, the location isn't in Baton Rouge, its in unincorported East Baton Rouge Parish near the Country Club of Louisiana off of Highland/Perkins Roads. Everything about the location and building is the antithesis of Galatoire's. But I guess you just throw up a bunch of mirrors in the place and serve shrimp remoulade and the amandine dishes and it'll all work itself out, right?
Ya, ya--they were looking into opening a Baton Rouge location before KTMB and as the line goes KTMB just hastened their decision to go ahead and green light The Stick. Might as well give Baton Rougeans one more reason to avoid New Orleans like the plague. Galatoire's on Bourbon is to reopen on New Year's Day.
