Your job: Get to the restaurant. Our job: Help you order. This week, NBCLA's Eat This journey takes us out for...
Birthday party:Mayor Villaraigosa is stopping by to salute the Legaux family on Friday, November 20th at noon; the public celebration is a pay-$20-and-eat-well food festival outside the restaurant on Saturday, November 21st.
On the party menu: Gumbo and jambalaya, two dishes that the Legauxs are famous for, along with fried catfish and Louisiana bread pudding.
If you can't make the 40th celebration...Stop by the restaurant for a signature dish like the Crawfish Étouffée, which is rich and spicy and crawfish-meaty and $25. Po' boys, Shrimp Ryan, and Chicken Creole are other Harold & Belle's classics.
Three more words: Sweet. Potato. Pie.
And a few more words before we go: Happy 40th, Harold & Belle's! A true Los Angeles treasure.
