Baton Rougeans have two new restaurants to visit.
Chef Chris Wadsworth has opened Goûter at 3897 Government St.
Currently, Goûter is serving only lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays. Business hours will be extended in the future, with dinner served from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday-Saturday.
Wadsworth said he will expand hours and start serving dinner after Lent.
The restaurant, whose name is pronounced “goo-tay” and means “to taste” in French, offers small and big plates, soups, salads and sandwiches.
Menu items include camp style crawfish étouffée, red beans and fried chicken, and a venison dog.

Right down the street in downtown Baton Rouge, Cordon Rouge Bistro also has opened.
The restaurant, 334 Third St., is now serving lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
Breakfast, dinner and weekend brunch menus will be served in the coming weeks, according to general manager Matt Harrison.
The restaurant, which started in 2012 in the now-closed Courtyard Gifts and Interiors on Arnold Lane, offers French-inspired dishes while sourcing from as many local ingredients and producers as possible.
