Shocked and dismayed by what passes for gumbo here in the restaurant capital of the world, New Orleans native Dexter Stewart did what any civic-minded culinary ambassador would do: He sent for the family recipe and opened a place of his own. Everything about his storefront shop is minuscule, from the fourteen-seat dining room to the brief menu. Everything, that is, except the portions and the flavors. If you can’t choose between the gumbo, the jambalaya, and the red beans and rice, order a sampler of all three, neatly served in ceramic soup bowls. The muffuletta sandwich is as close as you can get to the real thing without having one FedExed from Central Grocery.Extra
Brunch: Sat-Sun, noon-2pm
