I started eating here about a year ago after noticing the place on Valley. Yesterday, I ordered the crab gumbo and was not surprised by the quality, which is always high. For years I ate at the Gumbo Pot at Famer's Market. There is no comparison (sorry Gumbo pot). The gumbo at Ritter's is thick, rich and complex. Gumbo is a very flavorful dish, yet Ritter's preparation allows you to taste the flavors of the seafood as well that gorgeous, dark roux. I've been able to try a few other dishes here that I've only read about, e.g., Pan Roast! The word for that dish is amazing! Service here is top notch. There were a couple of times my food was a little late because they were so busy and I was comped a salad. Great restaurant that I'm still not tired of after a year.
