I'll be traveling from New York to New Orleans in early February with -- I'm serious here -- a vegetarian chowhound, who has a great palate and does eat a FEW fish (namely salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring, and trout). I'd appreciate any suggestions for outstanding restaurants, particularly Creole and Cajun ones, that handle vegetarian requests well.
As for my tastes, my two favorite restaurants are Galatoire's and Upperline, but I've also had wonderful meals at Artesia, Brennan's, Brigtsen's, The Grill Room (Kevin Graham era), K-Paul's, and Victor's (Frank Brunacci era); wonderful bites at Casamento's, Domilise's, Cafe du Monde, Morning Call, Mother's, and Napoleon House; and wonderful memories of Camellia Grill, Lafitte's Landing, Mandina's, and Uglesich's.
Carry on, New Orleans! We all need you.
