For a more casual eatery, diners can try Orleans and York Deli in Windsor Hills and Inglewood. Serving freshly-made sandwiches inspired by the tastes of New Orleans and New York, the deli is known for its shrimp, oyster, and catfish po-boys and wide variety of muffuletta sandwiches.
Another local favorite, Uncle Darrow’s Eatery recently moved to a larger space in Marina del Rey, making it more accessible. The restaurant only serves gumbo on the weekends, but other menu highlights include homemade hot sausage and sweet potato pies.
If diners find themselves in Hermosa Beach, they can try Ragin’ Cajun Cafe, which usually has a long line out the door. The long wait only attests to the bold, full-bodied flavors developed by the restaurant’s chefs.
