In my adventures in New Orleans, I needed a vitalizing balance to the hedonism. Carmo, provided a simple path, literally straight up Julia Street from the Riverwalk. KARMA albeit often complex is deliciously simple in her path. Carmo welcomed me with an open sign, a...More

The food was really superb as well as the juices. Don't leave without trying the Vegan Pao de Queijo and the vegan Rico sandwich.

Vegetarian/vegan option suggested by our hotel concierge. Atmosphere was funky, food was really good, but service was flakey at best. They seemed to have about 4 people at two host stations, but they just seemed to wander around. Our server was pleasant, but it took...More

Food was delicious and the atmosphere is great. The service was lacking, asked many times for napkins and they need more employees to make things go smoothly. The passion fruit deserts were perfect. All drinks served in small glasses and food comes in big plates....More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Carmo is a New Orleans-based tropical restaurant and bar with a commitment to providing vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike with healthy and affordable dishes in a warm, friendly and casual atmosphere. The menu is built upon the rich, multi-cultural culinary influences found throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America, West Africa, Southeast Asian, Gulf South and beyond and features eclectic and traditional/traditionally-inspired dishes with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, as well as unique and little-known flavors from around the world. Exotic fruit such as juice of the cocoa fruit (cacau), cupuacu, graviola (sour sop), caja and caju infuse Carmo's juice and cocktail menu with exciting new flavors.
