I'm visiting New Orleans during Jazz fest but am honestly more into exploring local food than the music festival. Would love to find some nontouristy spots to avoid the crowds, if at all possible.
To add to this challenge, I do not eat meat (sausage, pork, chicken), though I happily devour every kind of seafood. Can anyone recommend a good seafood gumbo? I'm also traveling with a gluten free buddy.. not sure if anyone makes a gumbo without a roux but might as well put it out there!
I'd really appreciate any input you have. Here are some places I've had my eye on:
Domelise's, Verti Marte for po boys
Herbsaint or Boucherie for a nicer dinner
Pascal Manale's BBQ shrimp
Big Fisherman seafood for boiled crawfish
