Gumbo, Étouffée and more, oh my
Gumbo anyone? Bring your appetite to the Gumbo Shop in the French Quarter. The menu offers something for everyone, from Cajun to Creole, cocktails through dessert, at moderate prices. The Gumbo Shop offers indoor seating and a cozy open air courtyard and friendly, helpful service. Although it can get a bit crowded, it’s worth the wait. Besides the gumbo, I can recommend any dish with crawfish, shrimp or crab, and the pecan pie is one of the best I’ve ever tried. Vegetarians, take note, the menu includes a vegetarian dish of the day. The Gumbo Shop doesn’t take reservations.
