Description

Eat as the locals do on a foodie walking tour around the iconic eateries of New Orleans. Immerse yourself in authentic flavors and scents while enjoying eight sample tastings and four cocktails. Visit spots like Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter and Dickie Brennan’s award-winning Tableau. Begin your walking tour at Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans. Start with alligator sausage and seafood gumbo as you learn a bit about the colonial period of Louisiana’s history. Move four blocks down and enter Pepper Palace to discuss the Cajun influence and sample an unlimited variety of hot sauces, BBQ sauces, buffalo wing sauces, salsas, dry rubs, and more. Receive a free bottle of Louisiana-style hot sauce if you shop at this location.  Afterward, visit Leah’s Pralines, a 3rd generation family-owned candy store. Sample traditional pralines and their unique bacon pecan brittle. Visit the iconic Napoleon House restaurant for some of their specialties — muffuletta sandwiches, a Pimm’s Cup cocktail, and a side of Creole jambalaya. Arrive at Dickie Brennan’s Tableau to sip on your next cocktail: the French 75, a combo of fresh lemon, brandy or gin, and bubbles. From there, pass through the famous Jackson Square towards Café du Monde Stroll along the French Market area and land at the James Beard Award-nominated Cane and Table. Round off your tour by sampling their unique curry pork skins, fried plantains, and a classic daiquiri.
