If you’re one of the many people in New Orleans adhering to a gluten-free diet, you’ll be pleased to know that in recent years the city has taken big steps towards accommodating this dietary restriction. Although they’re what we’re famous for, the unique flavors of New Orleans cuisine aren’t solely based on roux’s and all-purpose flour fried seafood. There is a whole different side of local dining that focuses on maximizing flavor in lighter ways for those with gluten intolerance and those seeking a healthier diet. Here are some favorites (and some surprising!) gluten-free dining options in New Orleans. We encourage those with Celiac disease or cross contamination sensitivity to confirm with their server and chef of the restaurant that their dishes are safe to consume before doing so.
