Diablo Review

Livermore scored with the opening of Backyard Bayou, a downtown Cajun-style restaurant in a cavernous space that’s been all but empty for years. It’s sure to be a success; there’s no place to get Southern cooking—or an array of seafood—for miles around. The full oyster bar is front and center, adding New Orleans spirit. Tear into a platter of shellfish sauced and spiced to your specs. Or play the field, starting with a bowl of soul-satisfying gumbo. The shrimp po’boy and lobster roll are straight-forward but luxurious. Just don’t miss the spice-crusted skewers of grilled alligator—the meat’s distinct and delicate flavor shines through. Lunch and dinner daily.
