Eldorado Diner 3 
The Bayou 
Nov. 25 : The fried pickles at The Bayou were extraordinary. And…did we mention that the fried pickles were extraordinary? Unfortunately The Bayou proved to be one of those establishments that tries to get people in with a brunch menu when really they should stick to lunch and dinner and drinks. At our Sunday brunch, what struck us first was the unusually long wait time for the four of us to get our meals considering the restaurant had only a handful of other patrons. When the meals for two of us arrived, it was still another 5 minutes until the meals for the other two arrived. The quality of the meals didn’t help matters. The omelettes were flat and flavorless, the beignets were also flavorless; the sweet potato pancakes were too mushy and had none of the nice crisp that you’d associated with potato pancakes. The eggs benedict were a bit overcooked. Those fried pickles would bring us back for a different meal, but not a return visit for brunch.
