What You Can Expect

New Orleans Food Tour of the Garden District and St Charles Avenue

Garden District

Your gastronomic journey through New Orleans begins in the French Quarter. At mid‐afternoon, meet your guide and set off through the lively Vieux Carré (Old Square), where the French colonial influence is ever‐present in the area’s architecture, language and cuisine. Your 4‐hour excursion includes hearty food tastings at four stops, minimum – and a fair amount of walking to burn it off! Due to the custom 
nature of the tour, each group’s unique dynamic invites a different itinerary. So let your guide know what you’re keen to see and try.

A typical trip through this upmarket district begins along St Charles Avenue heading out of the French Quarter. Marvel at historic mansions and passing streetcars between hot local eateries such as Avenue Pub – a New Orleans favorite. Pop in for a tasty craft beer and a specialty bite, then perhaps head to Leah’s Pralines, where you can sample a classic Creole praline or a new innovation such as bacon pecan brittle. For some southern food with contemporary flair, your guide may lead you to the Irish House pub for a sample of rich Irish‐inspired bayou gumbo or the artful Tivoli and Lee restaurant for a pork belly slider. 

Of course, New Orleans is a town of eating and drinking. For a unique imbibing experience, you’ll visit the chic Bellocq in the Hotel Modern for a handcrafted, one‐of‐a‐kind cocktail such as their 19th‐century‐style punch. Enjoy a tasting here, and purchase another beverage at your own expense before heading back to the French Quarter where your tour ends.
