Update: As many of you guessed, we were at Riverbend Restaurant & Bar. We've reached out to the winner. Thanks to all who played!

Original post follows....

On cold, rainy days, few things are as comforting as a thick étouffée of shellfish, served with a pile of warm rice. In this particular version, we enjoyed a brown roux studded with thick, bouncy shrimp and crawfish, although it's just as good without a blond roux, and just as good without the shrimp.

So where did we eat this Creole classic? Leave your best guess in the comments section below, and you could win $20 to Apollonia Restaurant (6836 Gravois Ave., 314-353-1488). We'll update this post when we have a winner.

As always, thanks for playing, and thanks for your patience as we choose a winner.
