Baton Rouge is not New Orleans, as people in New Orleans will let you know immediately. I’ve gotten a few I’m sorry’s when I tell people where I live, and a lot of But, why?’s.

I get it. New Orleans has more charming architecture and walkable neighborhoods (Baton Rouge is a city of sprawl and it can feel like traffic on the I-10 controls your life), more cultural cachet and a more vaunted food reputation.
