Combining the history of Louisiana cuisine and New Orleans-style cocktails, this event is a feast for the senses! 

Along with your guide you will visit up 6 locations: award-winning seafood restaurants, James Beard Award-nominated craft cocktail lounges, Creole restaurants, artisanal candy stores and more.

Once inside you’ll sample up to 8 or more different dishes that represent the modern expressions of our culinary heritage: classic dishes like gumbo, and muffulettas, but also new interpretations like savory fried plantains and curried pork skins!

We'll also enjoy 4 full-sized cocktails like the refreshing Pimm's Cup, the rum-heavy Hurricane, the classic Daiquiri and more!

This 4-hour gastronomic odyssey is our way of showing you where we like to go now, and what we like to eat and drink once we're there.

With so many dining and drinking options in New Orleans, why not try up to 6 different places in one fell swoop?!
