Cajun/Creole restaurant Lafayette opened in early May of this year, boasting a menu of Louisiana favorites like jambalaya, red beans and rice, and three different types of gumbo. Now the restaurant is excited to announce the start their new brunch menu, which according to Lafayette’s executive chef, Tres Hundertmark, is a big part of New Orleans restaurant culture.
“The eggs poached in Cajun Gumbo are very tasty and unique,” Hundertmark said about some of the items on the new menu. “And we are pretty excited about the stuffed veal breast and beignets as well.
“Most of the menu items and recipes were determined prior to bringing on our chef Joseph Duplan, and the brunch menu is his opportunity to begin to add his personal touches to the restaurant,” she added. “We plan to change the menu weekly keeping some of the items all the time and changing others constantly.”
Lafayette will be starting their brunch service tomorrow, July 27, and invites all to come and try it out!
