New Orleans is known for its unique, multicultural spin on soul food. Make your way to Carrollton to discover one of the city’s hottest gourmet scenes away from the tourist crowds of the French Quarter. This vibrant uptown neighborhood is easily accessible via the iconic St Charles streetcar from downtown or the Garden District.
Hop off and meet your guide on Oak Street, the bustling heart of Carrollton. Stroll along historic storefronts, bars and music venues and stop in at several local eateries. You’ll have a chance to talk to the proprietors for a chef’s perspective on the best of local cuisine.
The exact itinerary varies by day, but you might stop at local favorites Jacque-Imo’s and Cowbell for classic ‘Nawlins’ cooking, Chiba Samplings for some of the best Japanese fusion in town or Squeal BBQ for flavorful, fork-tender meats. Quench your thirst with fresh squeezes at D’Juice or something with more kick at Rue de La Course Coffee Shop.
After 3 hours and enough samplings to make a satisfying small meal, return to the starting point on Oak Street, where you can continue exploring on your own.
