The Gumbo Bros.

Founders Adam Lathan and Clay Boulware met as undergrads at Louisiana State, and decided to bring their authentic gumbo (based on Lathan’s family recipes) to New York. They include the tomato-based Frenchman Street Creole Gumbo (with shrimp, sausage, and okra), Nanny’s Cajun Gumbo (chicken and sausage, pictured), and a vegan collard green and black eyed pea gumbo.

The Cannibal

These sandwiches are good enough to stop you dead in your tracks, and include the famed pig’s-head Cuban, roast beef, and turkey sandwiches. The grilled cheese definitely isn’t like grandma made; it’s made with pancetta, mozzarella, and Brussels sprouts.
