Dig Baton Rouge

This Month in DIG: July

Do you smell that? That tomatoey, spicy goodness that is the red sauce at Pinetta’s? I smell that sauce in my dreams.

OK, maybe I’m taking it a little too far, but when I want a special treat, I’m always heading under the overpass to Pinetta’s for spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna or chicken parmigiana, washed down with a glass of Chianti. Maybe it’s the “Godfather”-esque music playing in the background, or the so-dim-you-almost-can’t-see lighting, but whenever I dine in, I’m always pleased with my experience. After LSU games, on spur-of-the-moment dates, after I rewatch “The Sopranos,” (I’m sorry for talking about that so much, by the way. I know I’m 10 years late) I’m always down for some Pinetta’s.

Even if Italian food isn’t your thing, you can bet you’ll find somewhere great to eat in Baton Rouge. As I’m sure you can tell, there are few things that excite me more than food, and here in the Red Stick, we’re definitely blessed in that category. It certainly doesn’t end at Cajun food here (even though I could go for some gumbo right now). But have you ever wondered about the men and women behind your favorite capital city meals? How’d they get here? What’s their favorite meal? And how the heck did they learn to cook like that? In this issue, we answered those questions for you, and more.

Happy eating,

Rebecca Docter
