    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.

    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.
