Where to Go: Bayou Road 

click to enlarge photo_1.jpg

Branching off from Esplanade Avenue and its shaded townhouses and mansions, Bayou Road is a casual cultural hub winding several blocks to the gates of the Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots. The quiet strip through a residential area on the edge of Mid-City has blossomed with cafes and businesses. Stop by Pagoda Cafe early for coffee and pastries, browse the used cookbooks at Kitchen Witch Cookbooks or take in the nightlife at Club Caribbean.
