Local diners have learned that they don’t need to wait for Mardi Gras to slurp down a bowl of gumbo. Local restaurants cater to fans of the iconic Southern specialty year-round these days.
The hearty dish historically associated with NOLA is cooked and served in homes and restaurants all over Louisiana, and beyond. Making a great gumbo is almost a rite of passage for many Southern chefs.
Here in the D.C. area, there are many takes on gumbo, from traditional to contemporary. Whether prepared with pork, poultry, or seafood, they all deliver a punch of flavor that brings the Big Easy to the DMV.
The featured restaurants are not ranked; they are arranged geographically from north to south.
