The walking tour begins at SoBou Restaurant and Bar in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans. You will begin with two pre-Civil War cocktail recipes, the Sazerac (1830s) and the Brandy Crusta (1850s). You will then move on to try the first three dishes: Boudin, Fried Cracklins and Sweet Potato Beignets. This part of the tour usually lasts about 45 minutes.
Moving one block over you will enter Pepper Palace and sample an unlimited variety of hot sauces, BBQ sauces, Buffalo Wings sauces, salsas, olive oils, 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 four blocks away and known as Leah's Praline's, a 3rd generation family-owned candy store. You will sample traditional pralines and their unique Bacon Pecan Brittle.
You will then move on to the luxurious Bourbon Orleans Hotel's bar, the Bourbon "O", managed by the most published author on cocktail-related books in the world, Cheryl Charming. You will indulge in the classic highball drink of 1840's New Orleans known as the Roffignac.
Stop five is NOLA Poboys, a funky dive with great sandwiches. You will sample their Fried Catfish Po-boy on fresh New Orleans French Bread in addition to the Muffuletta: an Italian-style sandwich with mortadella, salami, ham, provolone cheese, mozzarella cheese and an olive salad spread.
You then move on to the second oldest restaurant in the city, Tujague's, which has been open since 1856. You will dine on their slow-cooked Creole Beef Brisket dish, and wash it down with a Tujague's original from 1919, the Grasshopper.
Arriving around 4pm the last stop is Dickie Brennan's Tableau Restaurant, a gorgeous 3-story Creole restaurant facing the main square of the city, Jackson Square. The tour concludes with a delicious Seafood Gumbo made with shrimp (prawn), crab, local oysters, along with the champagne-based French 75 cocktail.
Guests are encouraged to stay at Tableau past the tour to enjoy Happy Hour.
