Vegans and Vegeterians Can Enjoy a Great New Orleans Meal, too!

In this episode I talk with Jessica Parker, a New Orleanian in spirit and a frequent visitor who also happens to be a vegan. Together, we dive into great places to eat vegan and vegetarian  in the Crescent City. Along the way, we discover plenty of places to eat where vegans, vegeterians and meat lovers can all break bread together.

Even if you are not a vegan, you’ll find plenty of ideas for places to eat in New Orleans. The discussion was a lot of fun and I ended up with a great list of places to enjoy along with my friends who are vegan. This question has been coming up a lot recently, so I am excited to dve into this topic with Jessica.

Break out your paper and pen your note taking app (I use Evernote). We cover places to eat from the Bywater all the way to Riverbend. By the end of today’s show, you’ll know exactly where to eat vegan and vegeterian in New Orleans!

  1. I can’t tell you how helpful this is. I know the vegans would shutter to hear this, but I am carnivore with a dairy allergy. Although I’ve been to New Orleans several times, eating in the city can be challenging for me with many dishes layered with butter, cream, milk or cheese. I love the taste of all of those favors but my body rejects it all. Before this podcast, I’ve done my own research on safe places for me to eat. That’s how I discovered the Breads on Oak shop…OMG they are sooooooo delicious! There are a few places that I still need to try like Seed and Sneaky Pickle. Thankfully my Husband is very understanding of my dietary requirements and doesn’t mind being adventurous with food.

  2. This was very helpful! My husband and I are finally getting back to New Orleans after a long 15 years and bringing our two teenagers. My daughter and I are vegetarians and my husband is basically the opposite so the suggestions on places where we could all eat and be happy we especially helpful. I do, however, plan to split up at least once or twice so we can try a few of the less carnivore friendly suggestions. Thanks Mark! I’m so glad I found your podcast.

  3. Hi, Megan! So glad you found this episode helpful. When Jessica and I recorded it we definitely were trying to find the balance so that people could enjoy New Orleans food together.
