gumboDown on Western Avenue, around the corner from our brick & mortar storefront, folks still talk in hushed tones about a little place called Sesto’s Cafe, and the legendary gumbo of Chuck Smith. Chicken and sausage are served up alongside the classic trinity of celery, onion, and bell pepper, with a touch of Herbes de Provence, for mouthwatering and memorable flavor.

Sesto’s is gone now, but it’s legacy lives on in Chuck’s famous recipe, which he generously shared with us. We’ve made a few changes, to keep his secrets safe, but this bayou classic is still worthy of every bit of it’s formidable reputation.
