Gumbo is closed.

The Canal District’s Gumbo is closed and will reopen the first week of February as the Canal Bar & Grille. Owner Nick Vapiano, who also owns Holden’s Flip Flops, will keep a great many of Gumbo’s favorites ~ including the raw bar, jambalaya, blackened steaks and ettouffee ~ but he’s also expanding the menu, so that it is more eclectic. Expect to see moderately priced comfort food such as mac ‘n cheese, lasagna, hamburgers, steaks and seafood at this American grill.
