Bayou ‘n Bourbon Blows into Marlow’s Tavern
Batten down at the bar or table and prepare to be blown away by Big Easy cuisine and cocktails during the annualMarlow’s Tavern Bayou ‘n Bourbon celebration going on through March 30 at all Marlow’s locations. While Mardi Gras jazzes down Bourbon Street, “Marleaux” spins its own spirited take on Louisiana lunch and dinner victuals and cocktails. Chow down on Mo’ Betta Food: roasted chicken and shrimp gumbo; Le Cajun Boudin, a slow-roasted pork seasoned Cajun-style; daily flatbread from the bayou with Marlow’s secret sauce; N’awlins-style po’boy with tempura-battered shrimp and crawfish; Creole patty melt with andouille sausage, Swiss cheese, caramelized onions and peppers and house-made Creole rémoulade; deconstructed jambalaya of grilled Prestige Farms chicken, andouille sausage, house-made dirty rice and traditional crawfish Creole sauce; and blackened NOLA red fish grill with corn and okra choux ($6.50-$18.50). Jack Daniel’s Honey splashes the honey bourbon bread pudding for a feisty Bourbon Street sweet ($7). NOLA is known for its liberal libations, and Marlow’s upholds the tradition with handcrafted cocktails including Ramos gin fizz, Bourbon Street lemonade and Cajun cosmo; cold brews of Abita Strawberry Harvest and Abita amber; and Sokol Blosser Evolution, Oregon 16th edition, a crisp white wine that pals well with Cajun spices. For those seeking a milder winter, Marlow’s regular menu also is available during Bayou ‘n Bourbon.
