While we're in town next week, we'll be hosting an out-of-town vegetarian friend at lunch. We never eat vegetarian in NOLA, so we're clueless. Any stellar suggestions? We'd like food with a creole flair, not ethnic that you can find anywhere in the USA.
Try the Cajun Kosher Kitchen - great food! Shellfish is taboo in Kosher cooking and they make great NOLA standbys. Last time I was there was pre - Katrina and I hope it is still there...good luck!
Praline Connection on Frenchman offers a few different greens and beans and rice options that are vegetarian, though I wouldn't call them stellar by any means. Though I haven't been since the storm, I always found that Herbsaint had at least one delicious vegitarian option on their menu, I assume that would carry through lunch as well. But as a general rule, most restaurants will also be happy to make something if you call them ahead of time and tell the chef that you are travelling with a vegitarian (though again, I haven't tried this too often with lunch)
