The Baton Rouge River Center unveiled two new specialty food outlets earlier today: The Smokehouse Café and Ma Rouge’s Pizza & Panini, according to a news release from the venue.
“Our mission statement is to make every event at the River Center, the year’s very best,” said General Manager Michael Day in the release. “We have a great catering division called SAVOR…Baton Rouge. I wanted to use our culinary talent to bring our patrons more than the predictable concession fare, and we are doing that with The Smokehouse Café and Ma Rouge’s.”
The new outlets are located in the lower concourse of the arena on the north side. The Smokehouse Café offers smoked prime-rib sandwiches, smoked pork spare ribs, smoked chicken wings and Cajun crab cake sliders. Ma Rouge’s offers pressed panini and pizza.
