Combo Cocktail and Food History Tour
US$ 120.00
Overview
Get the best of Louisiana with this historical tour that combines all the flavors of New Orleans with a trip into the past. You'll follow your expert guide to eight different locations throughout the city that include Creole restaurants, cocktail lounges, sandwich shops and pre-Civil War bars. This tour includes samples of up to ten different dishes, plus four full-sized drinks that showcase the best of Louisiana's culinary and cocktail heritage. This is the perfect tour for foodies and allows travelers to sample the best in a single afternoon!
What to Expect

The walking tour begins at the award-winning Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans. You will begin with two dishes: Alligator Boudin with 3 Mustard Sauce, followed by an Alligator Sausage & Seafood Gumbo. This part of the tour focuses historically on the colonial period of Louisiana history, and usually lasts about 35 minutes.

Moving four blocks down you will enter Pepper Palace, where we begin to discuss the Cajun influence, and sample an unlimited variety of hot sauces, BBQ sauces, Buffalo Wings sauces, salsas, dry rubs and more. Customers on the tour will also receive a free bottle of Louisiana-style hot sauce when shopping there.

The next stop is two blocks away and known as Saint Lawrence, an off-the-beaten-path gastropub with a huge beer selection, craft daiquiris & upscale bar bites. You will experience a true New Orleans rite-of-passage: a frozen Pimm’s Cup “to-go”.

One block around the corner is the next venue, Mr. Ed’s Oyster Bar. As you learn about Louisiana’s oyster industry you will sample chargrilled oysters with a Southwestern twist, along with two major culinary staples: crawfish étouffée and red beans & rice.

From there you move 4 blocks up to Leah’s Pralines: a 3rd generation family-owned candy store. You will sample traditional pralines and their unique Bacon Pecan Brittle.

Three more blocks over and you will arrive at the award-winning Dickie Brennan’s Tableau to sip your next cocktail: the refreshing French 75, a combo of fresh lemon, brandy or gin, and bubbles.

From there you pass through famous Jackson Square towards Café du Monde, then along the French Market area, ultimately landing at the James Beard Award-nominated Cane & Table. With a focus on rustic colonial cuisine and playful rum drinks, you will sample their unique curry pork skins and a classic daiquiri of Caribbean white rum, fresh lime and sugar.

You will then move on to Trinity Restaurant, a sleek new venue focused on elevated Creole dishes with seating on the upstairs balcony. You will wrap the tour with Crawfish Fontina Beignets, and your choice of a Sazerac or craft Hurricane.
