Howe's Bayou Restaurant Review

: This Creole eatery is the most authentic N'awlins-style joint the Motor City has to offer. The narrow layout, neighborhood bar attitude and Mardi Gras color scheme combine to make fun-seekers feel right at home on the “bayou.” Of course, the real test is in the taste, and the andouille sausage po' boy is right on, as is the etouffée. Try the crawfish bisque, or peel a pile of boiled ones. We like the bread pudding, too. As for libations, cocktails range from a Sazerac to mint juleps and hurricanes. A small but evolving wine list is sure to please, as will the small-batch and single-barrel bourbons. And don't forget the beer, including microbrews and traditional favorites not only from the Great Lakes region but also around the world.
