    A Restaurant’s Take

    In Somerville, gumbo to warm the soul

    Highland Kitchen’s sausage and seafood soup.

    David Kamerman/file

    There’s nothing like gumbo to warm the soul, and the stomach. Highland Kitchen’s hearty version comes loaded with andouille sausage, shrimp, catfish, and crabmeat studded with chunks of celery, red pepper, and okra — all simmered into spicy goodness. With Whitesnake and Huey Lewis on the stereo, it’s practically a heat wave.   — Katie Johnston
