We will be in NO starting next Monday for 4 nights (YEA!). But... I'm starting to stress a little bit. Taking the kids this time so we're not going to be eating where we normally do. The older 2 (12 & 10) will eat anything, and love creole/cajun. The youngest (8)... not so much. She's had a lot of food allergies/intolerances so she spent a lot of years eating weird and didn't develop tastes like the other two. She is currently allergic to most fish as well as lobster (and will only occasionally eat shrimp but doesn't like it), and lactose intolerant to boot (some cheese is OK).
So. Dining is going to be a challenge. She loves red beans & rice beyond all reason, but she can't eat that for 5 days straight. Most menus don't have much that she will/can eat, it seems. She will eat a salad if there's nothing else, but that just seems kinda wrong.
We're aiming for pretty casual dining. Nothing too fancy. We'll have a car, though we'd prefer to stay in the FQ but that's not a must. For the rest of us, there needs to be creole or cajun. Breakfast is sorted (OceanaX2-- for me, Cafe du Monde, Stanley)
Our current plan is...
Fiorella's (lunch? dinner? what do you suggest? axle???)
Johnny's (lunch, obv)
Mr. B's (anyone know if they have a kids' menu? I'm guessing no. Dinner)
Lil Dizzy's (lunch-- thanks, axle!)
Verti Mart (lunch... not set in stone, but likely)
Redfish Grill (dinner... think they do have a kids' menu)
Mandina's? I've heard their red beans & rice is fabulous but only served once a week. I'm assuming Mondays???
Deanie's? I'm leery of this one, but they do have a kids' menu
Anyone know of anywhere else that's relatively casual and has a kids' menu? Looking for chicken strips (ew) or maybe pizza.
Sorry I keep bugging you guys about this trip. This whole taking the kids thing just has me thrown for a loop!
