No, this isn’t Louisiana, but the new GumboFest fundraiser for the city’s nature center played off its name, Gumbo Limbo.
Gumbo tasters and judges picked the winners at the first GumboFest fundraiser over the weekend.
The judges picked Ouzo Bay, the Mizner Park restaurant, as the grand gumbo master. The Boca Raton Resort & Club was the judges’ second choice and the People’s Choice winners.
Eight restaurants took part in the outdoor festival on the Intracoastal side of Red Reef Park.
Kids were welcome but there was beer and beverages for grownups, said center manager Leanne Welch.
It was only the second time the city allowed use of the site for a fundraiser, said Friends of Gumbo Limbo president Michele Peel.
