Louisiana Kitchen & Bayou Bar Restaurant Review

: The revamped Louisiana Kitchen & Bayou Bar is now situated in this Bethesda location with its original kitchen staff manning the place---and you’ll be happy to taste again the rich gumbos and hefty po’ boys. This place buzzes with conversation and clinking cutlery as folks tuck into their crawfish bisques, muffalettas (cold cuts, cheeses and relish sandwich), gumbo stews and jambalayas. Traditionalists will applaud the dessert selection of pecan bread pudding, sweet potato pecan pie and beignets. By the way, you can find savory beignets as appetizers, a good way to start your New Orleans meal.
