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; so is the etouffée. Try the crawfish bisque, or the andouille-encrusted pan-fried oysters with Cajun rémoulade. We like the bread pudding and peach cobbler, too. As for libations, consider the Sazeracs, mint juleps and Hurricanes. A small but evolving wine list holds some well thought out offerings. Small-batch and single-barrel bourbons are available as well, as is beer, including artisan brews and traditional favorites not only from the Great Lakes region but also around the world.
