About this Business
From Our Editors
At Belle Isle Bayou—named after one of the five islands off the coast of Louisiana—executive chef Byron Boquet crafts a menu of fragrant and tasty Cajun and Creole dishes. Red beans and rice are slow-cooked, allowing flavors to become complex, while the etouffee features morsels of crawfish, shrimp, or blackened fish in a spicy roux. Those longing for a sultry, humid evening on the bayou can turn off the hot water and exit the shower, heading instead to the Louisiana-inspired eatery to enjoy traditional gumbo or jambalaya accompanied by a selection of lagniappes such as dirty rice and greens.
