Steaks and Seafood on the Vermillion River at @Ruffinos

I had not heard of Ruffino’s on the River in Lafayette before, but I had discovered it while planning my trip, and was attracted by the menu and the waterfront setting, so I decided to eat dinner there before the James Hunter concert. When I arrived at the restaurant, I immediately noticed the stash of wood outside the main entrance, which is always something I like to see, as it shows that the restaurant uses a wood-burning stove to cook. The outdoor deck had a beautiful view of the Vermillion River, so I chose to sit out there in the sunshine. I tried the Fish Katie, which was a fish fillet with a cream sauce made with lump crabmeat, and it was absolutely amazing, as were all the accompaniments. The food, the setting and the service was impeccable.
