Some cuisines are so region-specific that they can't be separated from their origins. Cajun and Creole-style cooking from Louisiana’s bayou region is one of those culinary traditions, which is why a meal at DC's Bayou can feel like you've left the Residences on the Avenue area altogether and traveled down to New Orleans itself.
Stop by Bayou for lunch and treat yourself to a po' boy sandwich stuffed with your choice of shrimp, oysters or catfish and piled high with coleslaw and house-made dressing. If you choose to reserve a table for dinner, you'll enjoy a full three-course meal featuring things like fried green tomatoes, crawfish and andouille jambalaya and Cajun fries on the side. It's not just the food at Bayou that gives the impression you're in New Orleans, however; it's also the brightly colored decor, the live jazz performances and the large dance floor, which is often filled with lively visitors dancing the night away.
