any new veggie treats?

hey y'all,

about to make my annual sojourn, and just wanted to see if any new vegetarian awesomeness has popped up in the last year. My wife digs the veggie options at green goddess, the gumbo z'herbes at the gumbo shop... anything new pop up in the last year that's vegetarian/fish with scales only friendly?

  1. A few of the CH here, including me, have enjoyed the new Abyssinian restaurant on Magazine Street. And there are the older Middle Eastern choices Byblos and Mona's. Lebanon's on Carollton is also OK.

      cool. know the middle eastern spots- what's the name of the abyssinian place? is it just abyssinian? thanks! gotta keep gettin that lady good vittles so I can keep coming back. :-)

        The eggplant sandwich at Lebanon's is worth the trip for. They also have a vegetarian rice dish that is very good. Both are cooked with cheese.

          A classic New Orleans scales only dish is blackened redfish. Much more representative of New Orleans cuisine than what I posted above. Trout amandine or meunier and redfish courtboullion would be others. You can find these in many places.

      2. there are the two surreys cafe on magazine st., very veggie friendly. also, urbanspoon/ new orleans lists a lot of vegetarian restaurants.

        1. Last week's Gambit reviewed Cafe Carmo, a Brazilian-ish place in the Warehouse District where "pork eaters and vegans coexist happily." It's about a year old, according to the article. I have not been, nor had I heard about it prior to coming across the Gambit review, but I am intrigued.

            1. Satsuma on Dauphine Street in the Bywater is fantastic and may indeed fit the bill for you.
