For a city built on such shallow soil, the cultural currents run remarkably deep. African, Caribbean, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Vietnamese, Honduran. Others may call it a melting pot. We call it a gumbo. And it makes for serious good eating. From an artful meal at a 100-year-old restaurant to a platter of oysters or a roast beef po-boy and fries, every meal – every bite – is cause for celebration.
