...and Oysters for All at Liberty Kitchen

...and Oysters for All at Liberty Kitchen

There is a bowl of gumbo at Liberty Kitchen with your name on it. And it's utterly unlike any other gumbo in town. It's served in a bowl nearly the size of a washtub, and it's topped not only with fried oysters but also plump piece of fried okra. The dark, thin roux has a deepness and richness to it -- swimming with both shrimp and andouille sausage -- that is difficult for me to resist each time I visit. It's equally tough to resist the fat, breaded shrimp and meaty tomato-bacon jam inside Liberty Kitchen's "fried shrimp remoulade sandwich" (just don't call it a po-boy). PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
