Virtually any high-end restaurant can accommodate you easily. I really like Commander's Palace (Garden District) and Bella Luna (French Quarter). I know some who have gone to Delmonico (owned by Emeril). The Acme Oyster House supposedly cooks its seafood in a corn batter only. Jambalaya should be naturally gluten-free. Some gumbos are thickened with file and no flour but obviously you'd have to ask.

And then there's seafood. Yum.

BTW, if it's spiced with Zatarain's, it's gluten-free.

Celiacfreeman, I'm going in January also! I'll be there for almost 3 weeks working . I've made arrangements with my hotel to prepare gluten-free meals. They've asked me for a menu for 5 days and will alternate it for me. They are even buying pots and pans for my food to be sure to avoid cross contamination. Some celiac friendly restaurants include the one in Loews Hotel, W hotel, Acme Oyster Bar, K-Pauls and Maximos. I imagine that Gills will be fine too. As Richard has stated, almost any high end restaurant will serve you a gluten free meal that is safe. For breakfasts, remember hard boiled eggs and bring along rice cakes and peanut butter. I never travel without them!
Have fun! ;)

I can't imagine eating a rice cake, guess that's why I have gained 27 lb in
10 month and am now weigh 142. I'm short, so I need to put the breaks on.
Eggs are a great suggestion thanks.
I will be there on the 28th of Jan. Which hotel, so maybe I can get a meal there
as well. I'm staying at the Daulphene, but it does not have a restuarant. I just hope I can get some plain seafood in New Orleans and not worried about wheat in the spices they use. I will carry a gaint purse with my cocktail sauce in it, the Nestles brand of cocktail sauce is supposedly gluten-free.

McCormick's cocktail sauce is also gluten-free.

A lot of places do use Zatarains, and, as I said, it's gluten-free.
