First visit to Laplace this evening. We went early (6 pm) just to avoid the expected crowd and I'm glad we did. Even at that time all tables were taken so we ate at the bar. The oyster po'boy was delicious with a fantastic crispy bun. Wife had the Acadian Sampler and enjoyed all three offerings. The red beans and... More

My gal and I eat at La Place fairly regularly. We are always pleased with the flavor and quality of our food choices. You can tell that they use many local vendors and their fresh sausages are varied and unique, from lamb to alligator. I sometimes am disappointed in their portions (had a mussels platter this evening that came w/7... More

My husband and I really like this restaurant........for the food and the whole feel of the restaurant. It is small and some of the tables are close together but you just go with it. We went for Sunday lunch and decided we would not order what we have had before. I like the shrimp and grits and have been stuck... More

This place was truly a delight. Staff was very friendly and food was out of this world. Mexican Coca Cola ( real sugar) taste so much better. Shrimp and grits were some of the best that I have ever had, and I make it very well. Sampler plate was excellent, appetizer piping hot , just like I like it. Atmosphere... More

The times I've visited this establishment have been interesting, to say the least. This restaurant stands out from the rest of downtown Hillsborough as a new and exciting adventure for any taste buds out there. I must say that this location is extremely stereotypically hipster, although there are zero problems with that. Their brunch is nothing like any steak and... More

La Place just gets better and better. The Louisiana dishes are authentic and fresh. The service is smooth. The bar knows what it's doing from craft beer and classic New Orleans cocktails (the Sazerac, the Hurricane, Mint Juleps) to inventive daily creations. (I like the Old Cuban.) Try the Creole regulars--the crawfish etouffee, seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage jambalaya (the... More

Authentic New Orleans menu with delicious homemade sausages, etoufee, red beans and rice, po boys, etc etc. My very particular husband has never been disappointed in a meal here! And the bar is fantastic- custom cocktails, great beer and wine selection, and prosecco on tap! Custom Bloody Mary options at Sunday brunch are awesome!

Step into Laplace Louisiana Cookery and you would swear you were in LA and not little ole Hillsborough, NC. It is always good. We have been many times and each time find it just as good as ever. My fish is always cooked perfectly. Any Cajun dish you order it so flavorful. Very Good!!!!
