Blue Bayou Bar & Grill
Mardi Gras lasts all year at Blue Bayou Bar & Grill. Strings of beads dangle everywhere, from the wooden rafters of the ceiling to the awning of the full bar. Live music performances fill the air with sounds from jazz and brass to rock. Perched atop red barstools, patrons toast Louisiana sports teams with sazeracs, hurricanes, and other classic Big Easy drinks. And servers with necks looped in yet more beads fuel festivities with jambalaya, alligator sausage, crawfish etouffée, and other meals with Cajun spice. Away from the action, on the quieter outdoor patio, diners can also dig into desserts such as bananas foster crowned with whipped cream and cinnamon-tabasco pecans.
