THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bayou Restaurant Review

: Bill Clinton's office is around the corner from Bayou, so no surprise that the ex-president has stopped in for the Louisiana cooking. The smoky gumbo is as authentic as they come, but the chef offers modern choices too, such as sautéed snapper in a vanilla-lemon butter sauce with roasted pecans.
