Model and noted food lover Chrissy Teigen was on the hunt for some true New Orleans flavor on Sunday morning. The author of Cravings started crowdsourcing suggestions, by posing a query to Twitter: “Here comes a question I will surely regret: BEST GUMBO IN NEW ORLEANS??????”
Here comes a question I will surely regret: BEST GUMBO IN NEW ORLEANS??????— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 19, 2017
Fortunately, fans and followers came to the rescue with some quality suggestions.
@chrissyteigen I've always loved Mother's on Poydras. While you're in NOLA though, hit up Dat Dog on Magazine.— Brooke Buford (@brookebuford) February 19, 2017
Iconic spots like Dooky Chase’s also got well-deserved shoutouts.
@chrissyteigen As a New Orleanian, I would recommend either Galatoire’s or Felix's. Both are in the Quarter.— Caroline Hymel (@CarolHymel) February 19, 2017
Of course, Teigen could always pay a visit to the Eater New Orleans forums where readers chimed in last spring on the best destinations for gumbo (hot tip: the homemade stuff is always best) or check out James Beard Award semifinalist Turkey and the Wolf for some “unorthodox gumbo” action. Sadly, Tiana’s is not really an option unless she’s planning to take a Disney cruise.
Regardless of where she chose to grab a bowl of gumbo, hopefully she left full and happy. No regrets.
