Filé Gumbo Bar, Tribeca

Lucky me: an excellent po’ boy with housemade chips at the new Filé Gumbo Bar, Church St., Manhattan. Served at lunchtime only, with shrimp (shown), oysters, or, off-menu, half-and-half. The étouffée, which I eyed over the shoulder of a fellow diner before trotting off to second lunch, looks very promising, too.


Nice picture and a nice menu. I love Cajun food! Any outside setup there?

No, no outside seating, at least not yet.

Keep us posted if you hear anything. I miss Louisiana Community Bar & Grill. Remember them? Closed 1998, I think.
