Letters to the Editor


As local restaurant owners, we are proud to be a part of the unique local culture in Acadiana and to serve this community. Our participation in the recent "Eat Lafayette" campaign reminded us that the people in Acadiana truly make this a special place to live and a great place to do business. On behalf of all the participating restaurants, we would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude and appreciation to everyone that came out and participated in the 10-day "Eat Lafayette" culinary celebration. The inaugural campaign was a huge success due to the outpouring of support from the community.

We would also like to thank Gerald Breaux and the Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission for their generous support, as well as our sponsors, BellSouth and Atmos Energy.

Because we received such positive feedback from the community, we are planning to make the campaign an annual event each summer. We are already looking forward to next year and plan to make the "Eat Lafayette" celebration even bigger and better.

Thanks again Acadiana and remember ' "To Eat Lafayette is to Eat Well!"
