    The Bayou is a beautiful Washington version of New Orleans. Po boys are wonderful, ambiance feels authentic, dirty rice taste great. Get the hurricane and feel like you are on Bourbon St.

    Incredible fried green tomatoes. Blackened catfish that tasted just like my childhood. The Marie Laveau is a great cocktail, but ask for a bit more sour mix.

    Went to Bayou on opening night. The music by hot, the food, oysters with special sauce superb and shrimp and grit delicious. The hurricane drinks were slammin'. I'll be back.

    Go there for brunch and get the bayou benedict. Perfectly crafted hollaindase sauce. Also, best bloody mary in DC.

    Great food and great happy hour, but $19 for a Po Boy is sacrilege.

    Pretty tasty food and awesome drinks. But pretty overpriced for what it was. Big portions though if you get the po boy!
