Boosted by a grant from Motor City Match, it's the Louisiana-style restaurant's first expansion after 46 years of service.

Louisiana Creole Gumbo

Louisiana Creole Gumbo is cooking up a new location on Detroit’s northwest side with a grant awarded by Motor City Match.

The Detroit culinary landmark, currently housed on Gratiot near Eastern Market, specializes in authentic New Orleans cuisine with recipes straight from the bayou.

Expect the same Lousiana cooking at the new location, located at 13505 W. Seven Mile Road, like their popular red beans and rice, smothered pork chops, baked chicken, Cajun rib tips, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, yams, homemade desserts, a variety of vegetarian options and of course their mouthwatering variety of creoles, gumbos and jambalayas.

Inside, the restaurant will have the same aesthetics as the Gratiot location with a small dine-in area.  The grand opening will take place at the new location at 13505 W. Seven Mile Rd. on November 12.

Louisiana Creole Gumbo, originally named Luzianne Creole Gumbo, opened in October 1970 when former owners Joseph Stafford and his wife Margarine decided to bring a piece of southern comfort to the big city. After years of great service and delicious southern comforts, the Stafford’s retired and passed on their legacy to Joe Spencer.

Spencer honors the couple by continuing their love for cooking and fresh and homemade southern eats.
