At Johnny’s Po-Boys, in business since 1950, bite into one of the city’s classic lunch dishes — a famous Nola Muffaletta!

Pop into The Old Coffeepot for a taste of the sumptuous Cajun jambalaya that that Guy Fieri tried on the Food Network’s ‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives,’ and soak up the historic charm and bold flavors at Tujague’s, a former Spanish armory that dishes up a mean boiled beef brisket smothered in a special Creole sauce.

You haven't experienced New Orleans until you've been to New Orleans Creole Cookery! It encompasses New Orleans’ most treasured cooking traditions in an innovative setting that speaks to the way people dine today. Famous Bread pudding awaits your Taste buds!

Soak up the historic charm and bold flavors at Tujague’s, a former Spanish armory that dishes up a mean beef brisket po-boy served along side of a  special Creole sauce with just a dash of horseradish. 

Satisfy your sweet tooth with decadent southern-style treats and hand-dipped chocolates at Laura’s Pralines and Candies, New Orleans’ oldest candy shop where expert confectioners use recipes passed down from the 18th century. Be sure to save room for one last surprise sweet treat, a specialty New Orleans dessert. All tastings are included in the tour price and together make up a diverse and satisfying lunch.

Janice, Janice, Janice! We had such a wonderful time on this food tour! I really cannot say enough about the tour and our tour guide, Janice. She was full of energy and was like a ray of light. She not only taught us extremely interesting facts about the food history of NOLA, but gave us an overall history lesson of NOLA and the French Quarter. Informative and fun with some fabulous food! I want to go back and take this tour again the next time I am in NOLA. Would highly recommend it, especially in the beginning of your trip. Bring your walking shoes and get ready to eat some great food! A truly fun afternoon.

Linda was an absolutely fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Not only will you experience many different foods of New Orleans but you also learn the history, architecture and meet lots of nice people at the restaurants who obviously know and respect Linda and her tour. This would be a great, fun way to get to know the French Quarter as soon as you arrive but either way dont miss this tour.

Excellent tour with Linda.
Linda not only has the best foody spots but adds in history as you walk from place to place, plus some shops that you might miss. We could have follower her around all night.
Thank you!

Our guide was Jeannine Chance. A former elementary teacher and principle, she was empowered by seeing the light of new understanding in our eyes. The walk was always a short distance in the shade to the next famous eatery, always with an interesting history and a favorite of the locals. We would then sit in the dining area of the Restaurant while she told us its history and the history of that particular food. The samples were enough that we took some with us for our late night snack.
