In South Louisiana, you see it scrawled on the weathered sides of fishing boats, hear it dropped casually in conversation over café au lait: “Lagniappe”. A French Creole pronunciation comes out roughly as “Lanyap”, which is what we’ve taken as our name.
But what is Lanyap? It’s that “little something extra.” It’s a complimentary bowl of craw-fish bisque with your meal. It’s an unexpected bouquet of orchids in your hotel room. It’s the third encore after the show.
We grew up steeped in South Louisiana values, with Lanyap in our blood. And we bring Lanyap with us from our welcoming bayou origins to the cityscapes of Dallas and beyond.
