Darrow’s does a lot of things really well - including fried catfish, jambalaya, red beans and rice, and po’ boys. But they make a really damn good bowl of gumbo. The star of that bowl is the meat - from the imported Louisiana Blue Crab to the chicken sausage and andouille, each piece is impeccably seasoned and complements the thick, gravy-like roux perfectly. Make sure to get the filé gumbo ya ya - unlike the regular filé gumbo, this one comes with a mountain of jambalaya and French bread.
