Respond to Review of Meals From The Heart Cafe
by monicalsmith1

Review: No vegetarian choices when I was there two days ago. I remembered seeing this restaurants name here and in guides and loved the idea of heart healthier food in an area with so many fried foods. They had healthier options, but not the healthiest heart foods-vegetarian. I was disappointed to not find anything to eat here. This restaurant deserves a 0, but thats not an option, so I had to give it a 1

Dear Monica, my name is Averill Lazard and I am co-owner of Meals From The Heart Cafe in the Historic French Market in New Orleans. I was very puzzled as to why you gave our restaurant a 1 rating in your review, when it seems as though you did not even try our food. Monica, MFTH is known for doing foods that are low to no sodium, no trans fats, gluten free offerings, low to no cholesterol, no fried foods, whole wheat/gluten free breads,fresh fruit, no pork products, and we don't sell sodas because we don't promote them. We also, do not use foods that have artificial colors or flavors, and we "do" have vegan and vegetarian offerings highlighted on our menu. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you may have on making our small 5 seat open air cafe the "healthiest heart foods."(see our reviews on

I'm sorry that I did not have a chance to taste any of the items that you listed above. Like I said in my "review" I did not see any vegetarian items as I walked by your cafe, so was disappointed. So, I guess my only suggestion is to make the menu and specifically the vegetarian items more easy to read. Next time I am in in New Orleans--I'm coming back to your MFTH to taste some of the great items you described. Good luck with this GREAT concept of a restaurant.
