About EatLafayette

What started as a conversation between two local businessmen in Lafayette has evolved into a successful promotions campaign that provides a unique opportunity for people to experience local cuisine in Lafayette. Charlie Goodson, owned of Charley G’s Seafood Grill, and Gerald Breaux, former executive director of the Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission, got together in early 2005 to discuss how locally-owned restaurants could gain visibility in a market flooded with big-dollar franchise restaurant advertising. The result of those conversations was a summer EatLafayette campaign that is now in its tenth year. EatLafayette is a two-and-a-half-month celebration showcasing the restaurants that make Acadiana culture so appetizing.
