Itinerary Details

Starting in the heart of the French Quarter, we will eat, talk and walk our way through our city's most historic neighborhood while we learn about the cultural influences that created our distinctive Creole cuisine. As we visit select restaurants and establishments, you will sample a variety of New Orleans' most iconic dishes such as Seafood Gumbo, Shrimp Remoulade, Turtle Soup, and Red Beans and Rice while learning their origins. Hear about the strong Sicilian influence too while enjoying a sample of a Muffuletta Sandwich served with Cannoli and Gelato. Enjoy melt in your mouth Beef Brisket with Creole Horseradish Sauce that has been served at Tujague's for over 100 years! And when you're full, you can save your Praline from Leah's for an evening sweet treat. More than a food tour, this is the best of New Orleans' history and culinary history combined!
