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.

    • Please help,  I am 30.All my life from childhood I had upset stomach pain and cramps.As a child was frequently treated for giardia and still had cramps.As a child so strange I had bumps with water on skin.Not redness nothing else.Just bumps filled with water all over my body.Later I never had these.But in my early teens I started with fatigue anxiety.Then extreme fatigue.Hair fallen.Eyebrow loss over a few years to nonexistent eyebrow.Always low iron even with supplementing.Low vitamin D3.Low calcium and magnesium.Gastrointestinal for a few months now I have cramps daily.Diarheea almost daily.Treated for parasites and giradia.nothing changed. OTHER symptoms.  Bone pain.Spinal pain.Headache.Eye floaters.Done MRI and eye exams nothing all clear Low iron again at blood work. Low exercise tolerance. So bloated I seem like pregnant in 9 months even !!!if i lost weight the last three months Itchiness all over body but no bumps just redness Itchiness extreme on the scalp. Petechiae small red spots all over my body this is for years now. Tried gluten free even though in my country very hard to keep up with this. Only for few days then gave up and tried again and so on. Did some blood work but only 2 antobodies and not IGa and Igg judt one of them.Negative.this was two years ago. I don't know what to do. Oh and mouth ulcers. And have gas i am afraid because i can hardly control because i am extremely bloated. I am desperate. Thanks.  
    • I know this thread is very very old, but I want to suggest one thing to tired people. Get a sleep study. Sleep apnea is something that can cause you to be very tired, and it can kill you. A sleep study is super easy and the cost of an office visit copay. It's easy to treat with cpap and it's amazing how much better you feel.
    • Hi Monica I hope you are feeling better now.  In any case, your post made me think of something I have been reading about lately - Dr. Satsha Gominak's work. It connects sleep disorders and body aching. She corrects it by tightly controlling the levels of vit. D and B complex. Be aware that this can be caused not only by too little panthotenic acid, but also too HIGH panthotenic acid supplementation. And we celiacs sometimes rely too much on our suplemments.. I am guilty too.  Unfortunately, she is not the most straightforward speaker but her work is very eye opening. Please look into it.   
    • Always carry lots of gluten-free snacks whenever you travel, on the flight and elsewhere. Sometimes you are hungry and need something right away and it's too hard to find a place to accommodate ! I always packed one suitcase of food, which also included non gluten-free snacks for my 3 boys. We are always very thrifty, lol.
    • You may want to keep a food and symptom journal. Our reactions can be delayed and that can make it hard to pinpoint what 'got' us. A journal can help you see a pattern and help us figure it out. Enjoy that pudding.
