The Hidden Tastes of New Orleans


Get outside of the tourist center, drive to some under-the-radar eateries, and see our food through a local's eyes. As we experience the legendary cuisine of the Crescent City, we will share the unique history of New Orleans from a culinary perspective. We will taste some of the local classics, try some new bites from up and coming chefs, and venture off the beaten path to the areas of town known only to locals.

If you have a larger size group, I am happy to set up a custom tour. Please let me know!

Itinerary

Our journey will include four tasting stops around the city. We will start at your hotel, then begin driving towards an eclectic food market outside of the French Quarter packed with local charm where we will sample some local seafood. Next we will see a bit of the Marigny, Bywater, Esplanade Ridge, and Bayou St John as we head towards a po'boy shop that is arguably the best in New Orleans. We will then make a stop at a local Cajun butcher shop to try some specialty sausages or local freshly butchered deli sandwiches. We will finish with a quick bite at an ice-cream and dessert shop with hand-made treats and sweets.

Vegetarian guests can easily be accommodated, but please provide advance notice since our route will slightly change.

Guests will purchase their food/drink along the route, as individual tastes and hunger varies.
