Rooster Gumbo - Yum Yum

Just got in from a long wedding weekend in the bay area. I managed to squeeze some time in for a great burrito at El Farralito (why cant we have these in ny!) and had a decent meal at The Slanted Door (nothing that special). The highlight of my trip came as a total surprise. The bride and groom had their post wedding brunch at a place called Catahoula in Castiloga. Not expecting much, I ordered a bowl of Rooster Gumbo only because the name was tantalizing - Boy was I wrong. One of the finest bowls of gumbo Ive tasted including my 4 years living in New Orleans. Ends up the owner worked for Paul P at Commanders back in da day and then at K-Paul for a total of 10 yrs.
Who would have thought, Rooster Gumbo in wine country -ya gotta love it. Then again, who would have thought of rooster in gumbo in the first place...anyway, if u haven't been, I highly reccomend it.
