Home to all-star chefs and some of the south’s most distinctive cuisine, New Orleans is a foodie’s paradise. Meet your local gourmet guide across from the French Market at Sbisa’s Café, a local landmark that’s been serving up stiff drinks and savory fare to sailors, merchants and other hungry diners since 1899. Learn a bit about the history of New Orleans and how the merging of French, Spanish, Creole, Cajun and Native American cultures resulted in a completely unique regional flavor.
Walk to a handful of top-notch eateries to sample six to eight local dishes like seafood gumbo, chargrilled oysters, savory étouffée, the popular baguette sandwiches known as po-boys and more. As you nibble, slurp and sip your way through the French Quarter and surrounding area, get the scoop on the origins of each dish, from worker strikes to multicultural mashups.
By the end of the 3-hour tour, you’ll have a satisfied stomach and a brand-new appreciation for the city’s famously decadent delights!
