Looking for a hip and trendy restaurant offering great cuisine in a cool environment? Look no further than Avidity Restaurant Ultra Lounge, located in the heart of downtown Lafayette. One of Lafayette’s newest restaurants, Avidity, offers visitors a melting pot of fun in its very urban bar/restaurant. An outdoor patio area is available (weather permitting) that offers a view of our beautiful courthouse.
Last year when Avidity opened another couple and my husband and I were very enthusiastic to add this restaurant to our “restaurant double-date” list. We set a date and thankfully the weather was perfect that it allowed us to sit in the beautifully manicured courtyard. By some chance of fate, a table near the front of the patio came open just as we arrived which gave us a perfect view of the courthouse. All evening, the sun was slowly setting, making the courthouse look majestic and oh, so very lovely! I would recommend going to Avidity just for the view alone, but the good news is they also offer great drink and dining options.
Their menu is a mix of global and traditional flavors. We decided as a group to try a little bit of everything and share. We ordered their chili cheese fondue and their traditional cheese fondue as appetizers to get a taste of how they bring the global flavor of Swiss food to life. The fondue was creamy and served with crusty bread. For our dinners, we each ordered from their sandwich menu. I love spicy food and ordered the grilled, spicy chicken sandwich, which is topped with habanero jack cheese, bleu cheese and served on a ciabatta roll. The chicken was tender and seasoned with the perfect blends of “hot” seasonings. The French fries, which came with the meal, were hand sliced and cooked to the perfect crispiness!
Another positive part of our evening was the great service. We were instantly greeted by our waitress and all evening long she made sure we had full beverages and that our food was satisfactory. I thought this was especially impressive since we were in the courtyard area farthest away from the restaurant. Overall, we had a fun visit to Avidity, and would recommend heading there for a nice, relaxing evening out!
