Bayou on Penn

For world class live music, New Orleans inspired cooking, and that laid back Big Easy vibe, there"s only one place in Washington DC to go. Located at 2519 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, just steps from the Foggy Bottom metro, Bayou brings together the award winning cuisine of executive chef Rusty Holman, hand crafted New Orleans cocktails, and a rotating line-up of both local and national recording artists. With two funky floors of dining and dancing, Bayou suits any occasion. Whether it's grabbing a quick po'boy at lunch, sitting down to a three course dinner, watching the game with a cold Abita, or grooving the night away in our intimate concert space, Bayou is DC's number one spot to laissez les bons temps rouler.

Open for Lunch and Dinner Tuesday-Sunday
Brunch served Saturdays and Sundays.

"We had the opportunity to enjoy the food at Bayou on Penn after a performance at the Kennedy Center because of their late seating options. Was very surprised excellent the Cajun food and dessert was because the restaurant looked like a sports bar from the outside. The server was very helpful, so energetic and polite and had great dessert recommendations. We definitely will go back again to try brunch and the Shrimp & Grits!!!"

"The food and service were fantastic. The crab dip is addictive and seafood is cooked perfectly! The restaurant was a bit dark, and when we went business was a little slow, but that made for a nice quiet atmosphere perfect for chatting with dining partners."

"When we went there it was not crowded even though it is a small place. Service was fine. Cocktails were mixed well. Gumbo was rich and flavorful. The beef po-boy was just fair but the blackened catfish was quite good. The collards with bacon was good basic southern food. Moderately priced, very informal option in Foggy Bottom."

"I really enjoyed the food. The waiter and the hostess were very friendly and accomodating. My husband and I went for date night. The only drawback is that the website states there is live music on Saturday nights, and we went partly for the music. But, there was no live music on Saturday, Dec. 26th. It would have been nice for the website to state that it is only on certain Saturdays. On the other hand, I guess I could've called to verify as well. Other than that it was great. I would definitely go again. The wine bottles were also half price when we went. We both ordered a Po Boy with shrimp and it was delicious!"

"We were having trouble finding a place near the Kennedy Center with an opening at 5pm. The Bayou turned up and we snapped it up. It turned out to be a real find, cute, quirky, with fantastic food. All within walking distance of the Kennedy Center."

"Everything we had was great. Jumbo, fried green tomatoes, jalapeño cheese grits and crawfish pot pie, were all done to perfection. It is a relatively small place but great food and drinks. My wife loved the Hurricane and my Pims Citrus were both just like ones you can get on Bourbon St.
I would definitely go back.
