Two self-described laid-back southern dudes who met at Louisiana State University opened this slim-as-a-submarine snack shop when they found themselves pining for their native grub. That would be gumbo in a handful of permutations, including Cajun a heady bowl of stew brimming with smoked andouille sausage and poached chicken, served with a scoop of steamed white rice, and capable of curing not only homesickness but pretty much whatever else ails you ($12). Also restorative: fried green tomatoes with rémoulade dipping sauce, dirty rice, and beans; and an exquisitely sloppy roast-beef po’boy that doesn’t stint on the tidbits of stray meat and pan drippings New Orleanians call debris.
