Eating In New Orleans

I just got back from New Orleans where I ate like a king...safely! Muriel's and American Sector Cafe (John Besh's place at WWII Museum) both have gluten free menus. K-Paul's, Maximo's and Irene's have servers that understand and can reccommend safe foods. My advice is to go to New Orleans and have a wonderful time.

That's great to hear. I spent some time eating in New Orleans several years ago, before I got sick. The food was the very best I ever had. I would imagine that even gluten-free food in New Orleans would be wonderful. Just thinking about it is making me hungry!

i am headed to NO this coming weekend for a funeral.  now that i have my flights and hotel booked, i thought i should start thinking about what i might eat while i am there.  my first stop in research was here...

 

this is going to be a big family event, so i suspect i might have a hard time getting people to go to places that are convenient to me (there will be a lot of cousins that my immediate family has not seen in years).  so, my question for those that have been there - did you find that you needed to research your options in advance, or did you find that most places are reasonably educated and that you can find someplace safe to eat without having to look too hard?  my fallback plan is to eat at the hotel with my mom (she is older and doesn't get around as well, and i suspect that a hotel in NO would be well versed in food allergies)  

 

i have only been gluten-free for a little over a year, and have not traveled too much in that time.  any trips that i did take, i researched the heck out of before going.  we will be staying near the french quarter...  i don't want to stress myself out too much, but also want to make sure i have enough to eat.  i plan to bring some bars, and something to eat for breakfast (i am also avoiding dairy, so i suspect that will make it tough to find a safe breakfast).  

 

any information would be greatly appreciated!!  it is going to be a very emotional weekend, and i am thinking that getting a handle on food beforehand would be smart...

june 27, all the places I mentioned, except the one at the museum, are in the Quarter. The more upscale restaurants will probably be able to feed you safely. Some of the older down scale places (ex. Mother's) may be a little risky . Remember, these people live on the tourist trade. They do not want bad publicity, even word-of-mouth. Most places will bend over backwards to satisfy a customer.

There is a whole foods in NOLA. I've even heard of some bakeries that do gluten-free King Cakes...so all is not lost.

I know Emeril's and CP will do gluten-free well.

I haven't been to a hotel ANYWHERE (that has a kitchen, not buffet breakfast) that can't do something gluten-free. I've been pleasantly surprised.

Sorry you're going to NOLA under those circumstances.

Thanks pricklypear...

 

I ended up bringing a bunch of food that i knew i could eat (tuna pouches, PB, nuts mixes, KIND bars) and figured i would hope for the best.  i knew that i would be with a large group of cousins, and didn't want to be the 'whiner'. so, i went out and figured i would eat what i could, and know that i had stuff in my room if i needed it.

 

well, i had no issues at all!

we arrived in the afternoon, and i ate some tuna/nuts.  then we went out for a late dinner at the Renaissance hotel.  i asked the hostess if they had a gluten-free menu.  they did not, but the chef was happy to make me something (both gluten and dairy free).  he made me a delicious plate of zucchini, summer squash, fingerling potatoes, and onion - it was fantastic!.  then next morning i was able to grab some hard boiled eggs and fruit from the hotel breakfast bar.  for dinner the next night, we went to a restaurant in the french quarter.  they did not have a printed gluten-free menu, but they had a list of items that i could order (mostly grilled thing).  again, another delicious meal.  

 

i would definitely go back to NO, and not worry about food.

That's great news. I'm headed to the gulf coast next week...and just realized raw oysters are gluten-free. I predict an oyster rich dining experience (yeah, I know...June doesn't have an "r" in it so its not the best time, but hey..).

I can tell you that when I was there in 2011, Bubba Gump Shrimp had a gluten free menu. I wasn't diagnosed at the time. I'm planning to go back in 2014 and I can't wait!

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
