After writing about our less-than-stellar experience at Truluck’s last week, I felt I should mention the contrast of today’s lunch at Gumbo’s downtown. I had the sandwich combo with a shrimp po-boy, jambalaya, and chicken and sausage gumbo, followed up with a piece of Bourbon Pecan Pie. All of it was wonderful. A friend dining with me was also quite pleased with the Blackened Beef Tenderloin.
My only complaint is that the service was a bit slow — luckily, we ended up with an extra water glass on the table so I was able to drink from two glasses to avoid being out of water as often as I might otherwise have been. I feel like lots of restaurants have gotten a bit lazy about keeping water glasses filled recently, but I’m probably just creating a pattern where one does not really exist.
