EatLafayette Dish of the Day: Riverside Inn's sautéed crabmeat

by Camille LeJeune

This buttery crab is worth the drive to Broussard.

Let Poor Boy's Riverside Inn in Broussard do the peeling for you with its famous lump crabmeat sautéed in butter. Simple is king with this dish, but it's what puts Riverside on the dining map.

Locally caught jumbo lump crabmeat is sautéed to perfection, then paired with a few crab claws for a complete seafood treat that is worth the trip to Broussard.

Mention EatLafayette to receive Crabbies as a complimentary appetizer and Sweet Potato Beignets as a complimentary dessert with the purchase of two regularly priced entrees.
