I am planning a family trip to New Orleans next month with my 3 kids, 2 of whom cannot eat gluten, milk, or soy. I sent an email to our hotel (New Oleans Marriott) and this is the response that I got. I should mention that in my email I only asked them to check their bacon and sausage to make breakfast easier when we arrived. I was so happy when I read this that I cried!

My team and I are looking forward to your families visit.

We will be ready with Gluten-free bread and breakfast pastries, and some other goodies.

Bacon and sausage are ok, we will also have a separate pot of oil for fries so there will be no cross contamination.

I will make a-trip to Whole foods and get some Gluten-free muffin mix and pasta.

We will be on-top your families stay for all meal periods not just in the restaurant but room-service if you would like too!!

Please feel free to e-mail me with any likes and dislikes and we will make it happen!!

(chef)

I have also emailed 8 restaurants in and near the French Quarter and some at the airport and I will be taking notes while we are there. I will post my experience when we return to save the next person some work!

Thanks so much for coming to visit our city!!

I'm pretty new to the gluten-free thing. Rio Mar in the Wearhouse District is an excellent choice for Latin inspired seafood. Also, there is a restaurant called Casamento's uptown that has all gluten-free fried seafood.

I'm happy to help with suggestions for anything!! We have an excellent zoo, aquarium, children's museum and so many other family friendly things to do!!

Sadly, Casamento's closes for the summer so we will miss it. Deep fried seafood would have been fantastic!!

I only got responses back from a few restaurants so that is disappointing. I did find out from Lucky Dog that there hot dogs and chili are both gluten-free. They scanned the ingredients right off the boxes for me.

We will try Landry's Seafood for sure. Napoleon House said that their jambalaya and red beans & rice are both ok. Johnny's Po-Boys also said that there red beans & rice are fine.

I also heard that Bennachin has some options but they do not have a website so I haven't checked it out.

We are looking forward to visiting!

When are you going? I will be there in early August for a conference in the french quarter with my son whom has the same intollerences as your family and so do I. I am very nervious about being there and I haven't come across too many places we will safely be able to eat at. There is 1 pizza place I am eager to try because they are organic and have gluten-free and vegan options. It is calledNaked Pizza. Bubba Gump seafood restraunt I contacted and they said they can accomidate for gluten-free. I wanted to try that deef fried seafood but I see you mentioned they were closed for summer, that sucks. I read somewhere that cafe beget had something but another friend who is a localsaid she would not trust it because there is language barriers there and they may give you the wrong one.

Please let me know when you are going so we can pass info along.

    • Lol!!!  Well what the heck. I'm not entirely sure how the message boards figure out the algorithm sometimes.  however, the Advice was totally informative and I appreciate it!   I am a bit nervous about taking iron so I was thinking I would take a safe dose maybe every other day or so for a little while  and ask my doctor To rerun the panel.  a friend of mine is a PA and she told me thE amount I can safely take.  I just hope my doc will be receptive to Re-running it because he told me the labs were within normal range Because the cutoff for ferritin was 13 and mine was 20.  I have no idea why they ran it a year-and-a-half ago because I didn't ask and I wasn't feeling crummy but during the first gluten challenge they did an iron panel and that's when it was in the 70s.  so I figure adding a bit more iron to my Already decent diet isn't going to hurt too much.   I did ask my primary care if it would be typical for somebody with a completely normal hemoglobin and red blood cell count to go anemic with an 18 hours of fasting.  it was mild anemia wasn't severe obviously. I had a procedure done while I was in the hospital and you can watch my red blood cell count and hemoglobin drop while I was fasting.  because they seem to Draw a CBC Like every 5 minutes in the hospital.   I was told after having a colonoscopy that Crohn's was ruled out.  Of course I was told a lot of things!   I admire how active you are.  I would love to be able to get up to a half marathon. I gave up exercising for 6 months last year to see if anything would help but it didn't so I just got back into it probably sometime in February. There are days when I really don't feel well and I'm not able to but there are days where I feel pretty good.
    • Don't pay any attention to that reply. By the way I am so sorry you are suffering so much. I have no answers for you at all but hopefully someone will! When is the next time you see your doctor?
    • Matt,  Your post has literally changed my attitude over my morning coffee today In a matter of minutes.  You have done a wonderful job summing up the experience of not only myself, and you as well, but my guess is probably a lot of people who come to this board.   I know from having some email conversations with researchers that even those in the gluten Community do not see eye-to-eye on all of this. So we certainly do have a long way to go.  As for the three months you're absolutely right, as I had already tried a strict diet for 2 or 3 months and still had a lot of symptoms. I think the doctor just wants to meet after 3 months to see if there's any Improvement, the test. But I'll give it a good 6 to 12 as you suggest.  There is that lingering fear that nothing will get better and I'll continue to go undiagnosed with something sinister.  it is hard not to think that way in my case. however, again, your post is giving me some hope. And even if that hope is not realistic at the very least it's a distraction for a little while which I need.  And hey, it may just be the answer!  I am often on the fence about whether or not I should be bitching about my doctors.  in reality, two of the things in life I would never want to be would be a doctor or a landlord.  people really do look to doctors as if they are God.  a friend of mine is a physician and told me that it's quite frustrating for doctors when they can't figure out what's wrong with the patient and they get burnt out.  so I have a lot of respect for the Physicians who keep trying to find what's wrong and do so while being polite and courteous to the patient even though they may inside be feeling frustrated. I have absolutely no respect for the ones who  fail to notice that there are recalls out on their models of the God complex.
    • I'm currently searching for a brand of rice that is safe for even the most sensitive. I saw posts on here from around 2009 (I believe) and was just curious what everyone ate without issues lately?
