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.

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
