    The Little Big Cup

    Spend time with locals on the banks of Bayou Fuselier at the Little Big Cup in Arnaudville. This fine-dining restaurant feels more like the home of an old friend, one with excellent taste and a scenic view of the bayou, likely due to the owners Kevin Robin and Sanjay Maharaj. The two New Yorkers moved back to Robin's hometown, Arnaudville, and opened the restaurant in 2012. Since then the restaurant has created a buzz on the bayou with dishes like Praline Chicken or the popular Boucherie Brunch Buffet items. Their "A+" reputation isn't solely about the food but the wait staff's kindness and southern hospitality. 

    The Little Big Cup specializes in Cajun and Creole dishes but Wednesday nights are now reserved for the cuisine of the Caribbean, a tribute to the owner's heritage, Sanjay, who is originally from Trinidad. Each week the restaurant will explore new flavors, spices, and dishes from a different island. 

    Ask about catering services for any size group.
