Vegetarian in New Orleans

In March, I'll make my first-ever trip to New Orleans. Have read several posts describing wonderful eating, and I look forward to experiencing that aspect of NO. However, I need some guidance about restaurants that would welcome (and satisfy) a vegetarian (not vegan). I expect to have some meals w/ omnivorous friends, and don't need to eat in vegetarian-only restaurants (although would be happy to know about them). I do, however, hope to have more than one or two choices on the menu.

I expect most of my eating out to be at dinnertime, but would appreciate breakfast recommendations, too.

Many thanks!

I can't imagine any restaurant in New Orleans not having a least a couple of entrees suitable for vegetarians, but here's a list to get you started.

www.happycow.net New Orleans lots of options

Cajuns make lots of nice eggplant dishes that are meat free.

Indian restaurants are also a great bet.

There was a huge flurry of posts here last fall about vegetarians in NO. It started with a ridiculous complaint about Emeril's but went on to be pretty useful for non-vegans. Search for "Emeril's" and "vegetarians". If you ate fish or shellfish, you would of course be home free.

Johnny's and most all po boy joints have a vegetarian po boy. Dante's offers vegetarian options. Green Goddess has vegetarian options. Most all the fine dining restaurants will accomodate you if you call ahead. August is one for sure.

Dante's Kitchen @ 736 Dante St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 861 - 3121.
