Orlando’s new favorite neighborhood restaurant, Marlow’s Tavern, is bringing NOLA to Central Florida with its “Bayou ‘n Bourbon” menu full of cuisine from the Deep South. Now through March 25, Marlow’s Tavern at Pointe Orlando is featuring a special menu full of jazzed up dishes and classic cocktails that will take diners taste buds on a trip to the Big Easy.
“The flavors of New Orleans cuisine are distinct and irresistible, much like the chef-driven food and hand-crafted cocktails found on our everyday menu,” says John C. Metz, executive chef and co-founder of Marlow’s Tavern. “We want our guests to experience Louisiana cooking with a Marlow’s twist,” he adds.
The “Bayou ‘n Bourbon” menu includes dishes which are offered daily for lunch and dinner:
- Roast chicken and shrimp gumbo – a Louisiana tradition with a Marlow’s twist (6.5)
- Fiery crawfish fondue – a rich, creamy blend of crawfish, Gruyere cheese, fresh herbs and spices served with ciabatta crostini (9)
- Honey Jack chicken and Andouille flatbread – blackened Prestige Farms chicken, spicy andouille sausage, caramelized red onion and pepper jack cheese with sweet and spicy Honey Jack on crisp flatbread (9.5)
- “Nawlins-style” po’boy – tempura battered shrimp and crawfish, sweet slaw, shredded lettuce, Roma tomato and smoked chili cream on a soft Cuban roll (12.5)
- Bayou burger – fresh ground beef all “jazzed up” with andouille sausage, cheddar cheese, crawdaddies, lettuce, Roma tomato, red onion and house-made Creole remoulade on a toasted onion roll (12)

- Sweet Bourbon St. rib-eye – blackened Jack Daniels honey-blazed rib-eye served with tiny asparagus and a crispy sweet potato cake (26)
A Bourbon Street meal is not complete without a sweet treat. Marlow’s offers honey bourbon bread pudding, made with honey and vanilla crème brûlée, soaked ciabatta and a splash of Jack Daniel’s Honey (7) to round out the Louisiana inspired meal.
Guests will need to hold on to their beads while enjoying Marlow’s spirited take on classic New Orleans-style cocktails and drinks:
