It was a natural BLOW OUT!!! You could barely get in the place. People were in line before the joint even opened.

First, the Gumbo was THE Bomb!!! Good grief. When I saw the new Cajun Boil come out, I knew that would be my next choice when I came back. Tried the Gumbo Wings...delicious like everyone has been telling me.

Next, the music was great! A perfect addition to such a lively atmosphere, complete with beautiful paintings depicting the soul of New Orleans and Nita's Gumbo.

Last, the biggest treat, aside from the phenomenal food, was having Miss Anita Doty, the inspiration and name sake of Nita's Gumbo, present to delight in the festivities, great the guests, and even say a few words.

If you missed out, make sure you make your way in to Taste the Chase. Check out the new menu here.

Music: Verzatile Band. Vocalist: Akai Carter
