It's five o'clock somewhere - stop in Cafe' Vermilionville for a bite and a Sweet Crude Rum cocktail.

INDEats wraps up this week's series of Dish of the Day with a special edition we like to call Happiest Hour. It's Friday and the weekend is only a time clock punch away, so make plans to start it right at Cafe' Vermilionville.

Our Dish of the Day pick is the foie gras PB&J paired with a refreshing watermelon mojito. This grown-up version of the classic sandwich starts with a Poupart's brioche bun smeared with housemade cashew butter and Primo's Farmer's Daughter Pepper Jelly.  Seared foie gras placed between the buttery bread makes this culinary creation no child's play.

A rich indulgence like this desrves a refreshing drink as a mate. The watermelon mojito is just that, featuring fresh melon, mint, a touch of fresh jalepeno and Sweet Crude Rum (an EatLafayette official sponsor). Your taste buds and your appetite will be happy you chose Cafe' Vermilionville. Bring a dining companion and linger a little longer over Cafe' Vermilionville's EatLafayette special featuring a special four course menu for only $25.
