A popular New Orleans dish, gumbo falls somewhere between a hearty soup and a thick stew. It cooks in a flavorful, rich broth, and the recipe often depends on family traditions. For a taste of some gumbo around Lone Tree, head to one of these restaurants near our Lone Tree apartments:
The Lost Cajun
When Louisiana native Raymond Griffin and his wife decided to start a gumbo shop, The Lost Cajun was born. It first opened in Frisco in 2010. The restaurant quickly became popular for its authentic Cajun fare. Today, many of the locations are individually owned and operated. The chefs slow cook the gumbo to perfection. They use the finest ingredients and never take shortcuts. Enjoy a bowl with the garden fresh salad and beignets for dessert.
After moving to Denver from New Orleans, Brian and Sonda Brewster decided to share a taste of their hometown. That’s how NoNo’s Cafe was born. Brian and Sonda treat customers like family. They enjoy being at the restaurant and offer a fun, laid-back setting where strangers become friends. Enjoy the chicken and sausage gumbo. It also features vegetables and comes topped with a generous helping of rice.
Lucile’s Creole Cafe
Lucile’s became a local favorite in 1980. It was the first breakfast and lunch eatery in Colorado to feature a Creole theme. Chef Mickey Samuels is known for his culinary delights. He creates from scratch, and his delicious offerings have helped Lucille’s win awards like “Best Creole Restaurant.” Don’t miss the gumbo. Homemade daily, it comes with rice and a buttermilk biscuit.
Before sampling a bowl of gumbo, enjoy some rock climbing fun. If you would like to call Retreat at Park Meadows home, please contact us. We will offer a tour where you can see all our apartments in Lone Tree have to offer.
