La Bayou Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Bourbon Street’s dining options run the gamut from the posh experience to pizza-by-the-slice joints featuring automated poker machines. Somewhere in the middle of that spectrum is La Bayou, a full-service restaurant that struggles to be an “authentic” Cajun and Creole establishment, but never quite hits the mark. The food is unimaginative but serviceable, featuring all of the usual suspects: gumbo, fried green tomatoes, po’ boys, jambalaya, seafood platters and fried everything --- but nothing stands out. The wine offerings are limited and rarely change. Just remember these words to make the experience memorable: deep-fried bananas Foster cheesecake, covered in graham cracker crumbs. Situated in a renovated two-story building, La Bayou’s balcony overlooks the loudest and most raucous block of Bourbon Street. The bravest diners may want to ask for a balcony table.
