I'm so glad I found this place. The chef came out to speak with us and asked I was a celiac and said that pretty much anything can be made gluten free. The seafood gumbo was awesome. Plan on trying the fried catfish next time :) P.S. They have catering.
Even though they were out of the gluten-free gumbo, chef Ron made me a gluten-free fried catfish and shrimp platter. It was delicious, wait staff was awesome, lovely Nola atmosphere. I'll definitely be back!
Great staff! Chef Ron came out to offer me options since I'm allergic to gluten and also allergic to shellfish. He went out of his way to cook an étouffée with fish for me. They take good care of the gluten free customers. If you are visiting New Orleans, make sure you visit them. Food is delicious.
Great, GF, authentic New Orleans food experience! Chef Ron easily answered my concerns about cross contamination. His years of experience in hotel dining makes a big difference in his willingness to safely nourish his customers. As an award winning chef, the meal was everything we were hoping it would be an more. The GF gumbo had deep flavors and generous amounts of crawfish, crabmeat and shrimp. The GF fried catfish was perfect. My dining companion also dined GF and enjoyed a redfish, GF red beans & GF jambalaya. To say the least we left stuffed! I look forward to visiting again.
GREAT food in an awesome little hole in the wall. Staff and Chef Ron were very knowledgable about Celiacs, and Chef Ron later mentioned he could even make GF fried green tomatoes on our next visit by setting up a separate fryer. Our waiter recommended the Bayou Scampi and I could not have been happier with it. They also have plenty of non seafood options for people with seafood allergies (my husband). He had the Roast Beef poboy with potato salad and he was impressed with both, saying the potato salad was one of the best he's ever had. We will definitely be back.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The gumbo was delicious!
I had the jambalaya and the red beans and rice and they were absolutely delicious!! Chef Ron even brought out some fresh fruit for the children to nibble on. I'd give the food a 5 star. They were out of gumbo, and the choices for gluten free were a little limited, but they are really nice and aware of celiac disease and seemed careful and everything was delicious. It's a must try!
Chef Ron was awesome!!!! He catered specifically to my gluten free needs. He made an awesome gluten free gumbo and even made me some gluten free gator bites. It was all awesome! The best gumbo I have ever had even before I went gluten free.
They will specially make gluten free seafood gumbo and it was heavenly! Come here!
