Mestizo Louisiana Mexican Restaurant Baton Rouge Reviews
Art and Mexican cuisine Oct 12, 2009
I went here for the sole purpose of enjoying an art opening of two local Baton Rouge artists, but had to have a taco and beer as soon as I sat at the bar!
The place is a nice upscale Mexican restaurant with some wall space in the back dedicated to weekly local art shows and some live music. The food is not what you would get from most cozy hole in the wall mom and pop Mexican cafes. It was more of a creative Louisiana spin of Mexican cuisine. You still had the basic meals of tacos, burritos, fajitas etc etc.. but some local LA flavors were also present on the menu like crawfish fajitas.
There were also some vegetarian options. I had two bean tacos. They prepared them exactly as I ordered it and wanted to make sure from the beginning that they understood what I want. Which I appreciated. :P
Monday nights is the dedicated Art Opening night. Happy hour all night long at the bar!!
Can't wait to go back again! and next time I will take pics! :P
