What a blast--

The standouts FOR US were

K-Pauls (classic dark roux)
Herbsaint (see above)
Mr. B's (the Ya Ya--not the best but very good)
GW Fins (surprised us)
Luizza's BTT (more soupy but fantastic flavor)

2 disappointing things of note---MOST places we found (even some of note) water their Gumbo with either stock or H2O in order to stretch it out ---YUCK.

and second --could they please use some DECENT size shrimp in the Seafood Gumbo?--popcorn size seems to be the norm (we would GLADLY pay more for larger ones)

All in all a great great trip--
I'll post more about it later
