Full description
The walking tour begins at the award-winning Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans. 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,  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”.

From there, move 4 blocks up to Leah’s Pralines: a 3rd generation family-owned candy store. 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. As you learn about Louisiana's 19th century influences, sample artisanal cheese boards, spicy Tabasco caramel popcorn, and sweet potato fritters made with local red fish.

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, sample their unique curry pork skins and a classic daiquiri of Caribbean white rum, fresh lime and sugar.

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