Reviewed by FoodTourFinder!
See our review in the Comments section

 

Chefs are the new rock stars and this tour is a delicious journey through New Orleans and Louisiana’s rich culinary history! Down here we’re passionate about eating, so along with your guide you will visit up to 7 locations: classic Creole restaurants, neighborhood sandwich shops, hot sauce bars, artisanal candy stores and more. Once inside you’ll sample different foods that represent the breadth and diversity of our culinary heritage: dishes like gumbo, Creole brisket, muffulettas, poboys, pralines and much more.

We cover New Orleans’ various restaurant family dynasties, we discuss recipes old and new, we visit restaurants that pre-date the American Civil War, we recommend places to eat and places to shop. When possible the chefs come out to visit the groups and discuss their influences and passions. And with so many dining options in New Orleans, why not try 7 different places in one fell swoop?!

The 3-hour walking tour is conducted at a leisurely pace and with small groups. Most of the restaurant stops feature fully stocked bars if you’d like to enjoy a cold beverage (adult or otherwise!) during the tour.

What: Food History tour in the French Quarter

When: 1-4 pm

Where: SoBou | 310 Chartres Street, New Orleans, LA

Cost: $55 (includes tour and 8+ food samples)
