Special Menu, Trip Giveaway and Social Media Fun with #BayouNBourbon Celebration

ATLANTA (Feb. 11, 2016) – Starting Tuesday, Feb. 16 and lasting for six weeks, Marlow’s Tavern is bringing a tempting taste of the Big Easy to area diners with its annual Bayou ‘n Bourbon menu.

“I have always been impressed by Louisiana’s rich culinary heritage, which draws on French, German, Spanish, African and Native American influences,” says John C. Metz, executive chef and co-founder of Marlow’s Tavern. “We’ve been letting the good times roll in our kitchen creating appetizers, entrées and cocktails that show off that unique blend of flavors from New Orleans with a Marlow’s twist.  Let’s just say we're throwing our own parade for the palate.”

To kick up the local spice another notch this year, Metz’s team has added Classic Creole seasoning from Woodstock-based GG’s Fine Food to several of its recipes. “Linda "GG" Gibson learned to cook Creole the old-fashioned way - from her grandmother,” Metz says. “Her seasonings are very traditional in the classic Louisiana style.”

When the Cajun craving strikes, the Bayou ‘n Bourbon menu is ready and waiting for lunch and dinner. New items on this year's menu include the following:
  • Bayou Lump Crab Dip – Creole-spiced lump crab, andouille, spicy mustard, Asiago, Parmesan crust and toasty French baguette            
  • N’awlins-Style Po’ Boy – fiery spiced red fish, apple-cabbage slaw, shredded lettuce, Roma tomato and Creole rémoulade on toasted baguette                                            
  • “The Big Easy” Muffaletta – imported mortadella, Genoa salami, spicy capicola, GG’s secret recipe olive salad, melting provolone on pressed ciabatta bread                                         
  • Sweet Bourbon St. Rib-eye – blackened Jack Daniel’s Honey-blazed rib-eye, jumbo asparagus and a creamy crawfish pie          
  • A few of Marlow’s signature favorites include: Roasted Chicken & Shrimp Gumbo; Daily Flatbread From The Bayou P.D.; Deconstructed Jambalaya and Honey Bourbon Bread Pudding.

For guests who prefer to be spirited away New Orleans-style, Marlow’s has crafted a special menu of drinks and cocktails, which includes the following:
  • “Pat’s” Marlow’s Hurricane – a New Orleans tradition stolen from Pat O’Brien’s.  His secret recipe all “jazzed up” with Bacardi light rum, fresh orange juice and a floater of Bacardi. Hold onto your beads! 
  • Bourbon Rum Punch  – Old Forester, Meyer’s Dark Rum, vanilla, cream & nutmeg
  • Bourbon Street Lemonade – house-made  New Orleans original, Southern Comfort, lemonade, kiss of mint, fresh lemon & lime and a dash of simple syrup
  • Sokol Blosser Evolution, Oregon 16th Edition – unique blend of nine different white grapes, produced and bottled in Oregon with hand-selected Oregon, Washington & California fruit, bright straw, exotic tropical citrus, hints of spicy apple with lush, crisp, bright finish
  • ABITA® Turbodog-Draught – Turbodog Dark Brown Ale brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate malts and Willamette hops, rich flavors, perfect partner for all things Cajun! ABV: 5.6 
  • ABITA® Wrought Iron IPA-Bottle – Abita Wrought Iron IPA is the resilient, indestructible nature of New Orleans. India Pale Ale forged with intensity of apollo, equinox and mosaic hops, bright as iron from a fiery forge, perfect for a night on the bayou! ABV: 6.9 

During the celebration, one lucky winner and a guest will be Baton Rouge-bound thanks to a partnership with radio station 94.9 The Bull.  Marlow's and the station are giving away a trip for two to the Bayou Country Superfest to hear top country artists such as Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church and Lady Antebellum. Country music lovers are encouraged to enter the contest on the station’s website.

While online between Feb. 19 and March 17, Marlow's fans can enter their contact information on the tavern's Facebook page for a chance to win the Bayou 'n Bourbon sweepstakes. A grand prize winner will be randomly selected to win dinner for four ($100 value), with a second drawing for dinner for two ($50 value).  Finally, Instagram users are encouraged to share their Bayou ‘n Bourbon experience and tag @marlowstavern. Lucky winners will have their image regrammed and receive a complimentary Honey Bourbon Bread Pudding.

  1. I like this place. I was here the other night, I've been there for about four or five hours and found the prices reasonable on all fronts and the staff to be so friendly. I would be the perfect person to have on an infomercial for these Chicago event venues if they ever had one.
