  • Where to eat the best gumbo in New Orleans

    New Orleans

    New Orleans

    Southern cuisine is one of the most recognizable regional cuisines in the US, and also the most complex and refined one, according to many (but mostly locals from Louisiana and beyond). The objective truth is that Southerners have good reason to be proud of their cuisine.

    The French, Cajun and Spanish influences have brought some exciting flavors into the food of the South, especially in the coastal states where there is plenty of seafood. Flamboyant New Orleans is the place to be if you’re craving some southern dishes, like gumbo, for example, that delicious Louisianan seafood stew. Here’s a list of places where you can eat the best gumbo in New Orleans.

    Galatoire’s, Bourbon Street

    Galatoire’s is the place to go if you want some classic, old fashioned gumbo with none of the twists and surprises of nouvelle cuisine. The sefl-described grand-dame of New Orleans restaurants serves a mean gumbo, dark, fragrant and earthy, with loads of pepper and seasonings. The restaurant has many amazing dishes, but as far as appetizers go, the gumbo is the best.

    Royal House Oyster Bar, Royal Street

    Royal House opened not long ago, but it is already known as having one of the top 5 gumbos in the city. The decor is pretty modern, and many of the items on the menu sound very fancy, but all in all, this is a nice and casual dining place where you can be sure to fill your stomach. The chicken and sausage gumbo is especially good, rich and hearty.

    Dooky Chase Restaurant, Orleans Avenue

    If you want a gumbo that has it all, Dooky Chase will satisfy your craving. The gumbo here has crab, shrimp, chicken, two kinds of sausage, ham, and veal brisket. The owner of the place is world-famous chef Leah Chase, but despite that, it is a family restaurant with many creole and comfort dishes. The gumbo served here is definitely one of the best in the city, and it’s almost a meal on its own.

    Cochon Butcher, Tchoupitoulas

    Cochon Butcher (‘pig’ butcher, in French) is par deli, part butcher’s shop and part fast-food (in the sense that it serves food, fast, mainly traditional sandwiches like muffuleta). Their gumbo is a chicken-and-sausage dark roux that you can take home with you.

    Cochon Butcher doesn’t always have gumbo, but when they don’t, just pop next door to Cochon Restaurant, the more upscale counterpart of Cochon Butcher.

    Gumbo Shop, Saint Peter’s Street

    The Gumbo Shop has almost every single traditional New Orleans food you can dream of, starting with jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, and po-boy sandwiches, and ending with several types of gumbo. The seafood okra gumbo is one of the most popular ones, but the chicken andouille gumbo is not far behind either.
