New Orleans may be the divine Venn Diagram intersection of many styles of cuisine, but veggie isn't one of them, so it's great to find a place with more to offer than a veggie burger or pizza.
I heard about this place from the front desk at the Bourbon House, and wandered in on my way back from the chaos of Bourbon St.
Essentially a Caribbean/Latin American menu, there's ample adaptation for vegetarians and again for vegans.
Carmo is almost at the corner of Magazine and Julia, about 50m north of the intersection on the east side (Canal St side). I was welcomed by the friendly staff as soon as I entered and helped to a seat and helped around the menu a few minutes later. Everyone addressed me by name throughout and the food was great.
I mean the food was really great, but it was also stuff I'd never tasted before - I had black eyed pea fritters stuffed with a cashew and coconut paste and salsa. Fabulous flavours, and I rounded off with Chocolate and Zuchini bread.
Friendly place, great food, good value too.
