Get Cajun Food & Drinks While They Last

You have heard me rave about Marlow's Tavern before. It is the Winter Park eatery (that has a sister restaurant on International Drive) that not only has great specialty drinks and beer, but also a food menu that goes above and beyond typical bar food.

Take its special Bayou 'n Bourbon menu, which is only available until March 31. Marlow's added some special Cajun dishes to its regular menu that you definitely want to try. Some of the standouts are: "Nawlins-style" po-boy, Bayou Burger, Fiercy Spice Lump Crab Cake, and Roast Chicken and Shrimp Gumbo.

Plus, Marlow's is featuring special New Orleans-style cocktails through the end of the month. One that sounds delicious is the Marlow's Hurricane, borrowed from Pat O'Brien's. The Ramos Gin Fizz, made with Van Gogh dry gin, house-made sour, light cream and orange flower water, also sounds delicous and unique. Don't forget to try Abita Restoration and Abita Amber at Marlow's as well as the Cajun Cosmo, made with Absolut Mango and Peppar, cramberry, triple sec and fresh lime.

If the Crab Beignets appetizer are still on the menu, you must try those. Most everything else - including pastas and seafood dishes - are great. The burgers at Marlow's are good, but not outstanding.

Where: 1008 S. Orlando Ave., Winter Park, Fla.
