2013 Crooked Bayou Restaurant

Fowlerville has a new restaurant -- the Crooked Bayou.  As of August 13, they have been opened; something they have called a "soft opening."  Right now, the chef is offering a limited menu and seating is at a premium, so figure on take-out.  
It is well worth the visit!  My husband and I stopped there Wednesday evening and enjoyed a couple of "po boys."  I had a shrimp po boy that was delish and my husband had a "dibris" po boy.  Dibris, you ask.  Basically what that means is the sandwich is made from roast beef that falls into a pan gravy and then is served on a roll.  It was so very worth being so full afterwards! 
I took a few pictures but you need to head there to see what the new owners are putting together.  Some of the original brick walls are exposed and they've used barn wood and repurposed pallets to create a bayou, old shack atmosphere. 
Fowlerville is certainly becoming a destination for some "good eats" -- as Alton Brown used to say on the Food Network.  We've been lucky for many years to have Olden Days on North Grand Avenue, and now we have both the Grille in the Ville and the Crooked Bayou across from each other.  Dueling goods, so to speak.
