Vegan eating in NOLA

I am traveling to New Orleans for 4 days and I'll be with two friends that are vegan. Any suggestions on where to eat? I am not vegetarian so the restaurant doesn't have to be strictly vegetarian, but they need options too! I've spent time looking at all sorts of places online, but none seem out of the ordinary--Except Green Goddess which I loooooove. Any restaurants that serve local meats and produce are a total plus. Also, any suggestions on cool bars that aren't pricey, full of annoying frat boys, and have great bear? Thanks a bunch! :)

  1. There are no vegan restaurants here. Muriels, Bayona, and August have vegetarian offerings. As Tom Fitzmorris says to people with food issues, shop the menu for ingredients that suit your needs and ask the kitchen to fix it for you. They have the food and know how to cook. It shouldn't be a problem.
    Couchon for local meat dishes.

    1. I would go to Muriel's. They have vegetarian entrees. Good luck.

      Muriel's @ 801 Chartres St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 568 - 1885.

      1. Domenica has tons of vegetarian options, and they will gladly accommodate a vegan diner - I've been there with a vegan who has gluten issues and her meal was as good as mine!

        1. My daughter is vegeterian and she enjoyed Angeli on Decatur

          1. Push vegan through the search box above and you get a lot if suggestions. Also what Vietnamese and Mediterranean food?

              Indeed! I never think to use chowhound as a search engine.....I just look at random threads.
