Where can I get gumbo z'herbes all year round?

I've never had it before, and I'm too impatient to wait until Good Friday - thanks!

  1. The Gumbo Shop in the French Quarter usually has it on the menu year round, but especially now because it's Lent. Or try Dooky Chase.

      I've had it at the Gumbo Shop and enjoyed it.
