Weekend Review: The Gumbo Pot

Crawfish Etouffee, Cornbread, Green Salad with Pecan Dressing

One of my favorite spots in L.A. is the Original Farmers Market, which has been a foodie mecca in the city since 1934. Not to be confused with the once-a-week traveling farmer's markets in your neighborhood, the L.A. Farmers Market houses permanent stands for restaurants, fresh produce, butchers, and more. It's always one of my top destinations to take out-of-town guests, and I love the rich history of the place. My favorite place to eat is The Gumbo Pot, a critically acclaimed, authentic Cajun restaurant. I love their po' boys, etouffee, gumbo, and I always have to end the meal with beignets.
