New to DC, but luckily we discovered this local gem. Enjoyed another great meal at Bayou. It's not just authentic Cajun food like great Po Boys and Jumbalaya. Most everything on the menu is delish. The atmosphere is very casual and "bar" ish, so one doesn't expect the food to be so good! But it is. My personal dinner favorite is the Fish Out of Water - rare tuna, blackened on the outside, with a light wasabi cream sauce ... Delightful! The pork chop is thick juicy and grilled to perfection, served with collard greens. And, I can't forget to mention the fried chicken - crispy, juicy and very tasty. Chef Rusty's daily specials are a real treat. Look for his short rib ravioli and special smoked pork. We love the salads and can't resist the biscuits and sweet butter. Honestly, we've tried most everything on the menu and have not been disappointed. Even like the brunch ... And I' m not a big fan of Brunch - I mean, how much can one do with eggs! Bayou's " deconstructed" quiche was a nice surprise; the eggs were cooked slightly runny, as requested; and my son said the bacon tasted great and was cooked just right. For surprisingly good food and friendly service in the neighborhood. Lots of regulars, particularly at lunch, because it's consistently good and well-priced.
