According to Peter Sclafani, Founder and CEO of Making Raving Fans Hospitality Group, SoLou offers a modern take on Louisiana comfort food, craft cocktails, wine, and beer in an Instagram-worthy chic setting.


The Lafayette Location will take over the former Grub burger space off of Kaliste Saloom Road in River Ranch, which Sclafani describes as "the fifty-yard line of River Ranch".

Lafayette is no stranger to Baton Rouge favorites like Ruffino's on the River, Chimes, Superior Grill, Walk-On's, and Raising Canes, of course. SoLou is expected to get a warm welcome from the Lafayette community that already frequents these Lafayette staples.

We couldn't help ourselves so we snuck a peak at the menu currently offered in Baton Rouge. They offer Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner menus packed with everything from crab dip, boudin queso, to seafood okra gumbo and a Louisiana Sweet Potato Salad.

Safe to say there is something on the menu for everyone. We can't wait to welcome SoLou to the neighborhood by ordering one of everything.
