Herbsaint makes a great New Orleans gumbo
Donald Link's Herbsaint is a CBD standard, catering to power-lunchers and tourists alike with its consistently great French- and southern-influenced menu.
- On that menu? Gumbo, of course.
My order: A bowl of the chicken and andouille gumbo ($14).
The gumbo has a deliciously dark roux and a smoky flavor thanks to the andouille and hunks of tasso. It's flecked with a bit of color from fresh okra and chopped green onions.
- The basket of bread that arrives alongside your meal is a welcome addition when the bowl is nearly empty, too.
