It’s no secret - New Orleanians love our perfectly seasoned seafood, boiled or fried, carb-heavy po-boys, jambalaya, and muffalettas. And of course, there's a special place in our hearts for sweet treats like beignets, king cake, and pralines.
Despite indulging in our fair share of traditional foods, New Orleans does offer a wide selection of lighter options fit for all types of dietary preferences or restrictions. From vegetarian variations on Cajun and Creole classics to vegan-friendly New Orleans favorites, the culinary spread of the Crescent City is limitless.
