I just had to have it, or at least share one. Got a craving for the big round New Orleans style Muffaletta sandwich served at The Bayou on Gramatan Ave. in Mount Vernon. It was loaded with Italian meats and cheeses, and at my request, warmed a bit. The olive salad dressing on it melded beautifully with every bite. I got sides of crunchy sweet potato chips and cole slaw. Hardly needed any hot sauce, it was so tasty. Took half home.
My partner ordered a Shrimp Po' Boy that was good, too, with a side of remoulade sauce for dipping. A couple of beers helped wash it all down. I might have to tackle a crayfish boil down the line.
Caveat: I have been enjoying this bustling spot ever since Peter Van Cott opened it some 25 years ago. It is unique to the Westchester area. Sometimes, though, the noise and the service can run from efficient to chaotic. Nevertheless, it's all done in friendly fashion...www.bayourestaurantny.com
