Fodor's Expert Review Gumbo's

$$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area American

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Billing itself as a Louisiana-style café, Gumbo's occupies a spiffy split-level space in the Art Deco Brown Building downtown. The busy kitchen, which opens to the main dining area, prepares everything from fried seafood po'boys to more complex contemporary Cajun and Creole entrées. Try the tilapia George (pan-sautéed, topped with blue crab meat and served over herb beurre blanc) or blackened beef tenderloin with a red wine reduction. The comfortable room balances a high-ceiling main floor with more intimate nooks and booths.
