Where to Eat The culinary scene is booming in Baton Rouge! New places are opening left and right, and various cuisines are continually being represented here. Read on for where you can score some of the most delicious dishes and desserts right here in the red stick: Zorba's Greek Bistro will take you through a tasty journey with authentic appetizers, entrees and desserts prepared with the most robust flavors and freshest ingredients. Be sure to try their Spanakopita—a savory, crisp and flaky spinach (or cheese) pie. You'll love anything that comes to your table here! Plus, it's a family-run business that extends the most fabulous customer service.
