New Orleans: Combo Cocktail and Food History Tour

1. New Orleans: Combo Cocktail and Food History Tour

Eat as the locals do on a foodie walking tour around the iconic eateries of New Orleans. Immerse yourself in authentic flavors and scents while enjoying eight sample tastings and four cocktails. Visit spots like Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter and Dickie Brennan’s award-winning Tableau. Begin your walking tour at Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans. Start with alligator sausage and seafood gumbo as you learn a bit about the colonial period of Louisiana’s history. Move four blocks down and enter Pepper Palace to discuss the Cajun influence and sample an unlimited variety of hot sauces, BBQ sauces, buffalo wing sauces, salsas, dry rubs, and more. Receive a free bottle of Louisiana-style hot sauce if you shop at this location.  Afterward, visit Leah’s Pralines, a 3rd generation family-owned candy store. Sample traditional pralines and their unique bacon pecan brittle. Visit the iconic Napoleon House restaurant for some of their specialties — muffuletta sandwiches, a Pimm’s Cup cocktail, and a side of Creole jambalaya. Arrive at Dickie Brennan’s Tableau to sip on your next cocktail: the French 75, a combo of fresh lemon, brandy or gin, and bubbles. From there, pass through the famous Jackson Square towards Café du Monde Stroll along the French Market area and land at the James Beard Award-nominated Cane and Table. Round off your tour by sampling their unique curry pork skins, fried plantains, and a classic daiquiri.

New Orleans: French Quarter Walking Tour

2. New Orleans: French Quarter Walking Tour

This 2-hour long walk through the historic French Quarter starts outside 529 St. Ann Street, former site of the Louisiana Welcome Center in the lower Pontalba Rowhouse adjacent to Jackson Square (left of square as you face river). Historically used as a parade ground, Jackson Square is now full of musicians, tarot card readers, and street performers. You will walk downriver along the old French Market to the Ursuline Convent. This is the oldest building in the Mississippi Delta from Colonial times and housed some very adventurous and courageous nuns who came here in the early 1700s. You will pass the house of famous jazz player, Danny Barker who is legendary among the city's jazz musicians. You will then come to one of the many former macaroni factories of the lower French Quarter, proof of the major role that Sicilian immigrants played in the city's history. You will come across the house of Vincente Nunez, a Spaniard, whose carelessness caused a fire that destroyed 80% of the city in 1788. You will then see several of the city's former slave markets and learn about Jean Francois Merieult, an influential and powerful Creole businessman and slave trader. After a stop at Preservation Hall, the city's holy grail of traditional jazz, the tour ends in Jackson Square with a story about the famous Madame de Pontalba, a French baroness and businesswoman with an eye for beautiful architecture.

We had been recommended this tour and it did not disappoint. We had arrived the night before this tour and went to a restaurant called Mambo’s for dinner. New Orleans has a high reputation for amazing food and in one night and one meal, Mambo’s had banished that idea. The food was disgusting and service although pleasant had not even enquired why we hadn’t eaten our food when we asked for the check (I presume they’re used to it). Dr Manbo’s tour banished the idea that food in New Orleans is sub par. Best food tour I have ever been in hands down. Unlike others where you are encouraged to buy goods they want you too, this was not the case here. Keep up the amazing work and allow others to fall in love with New Orleans and its food!!!

The tour was one of the highlights of our trip! Informative without being too talky, just the right amount of walking, and so much fun. You will leave the tour tipsy and SO full without regretting your purchase even a little bit.

Randy was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed walking through the French Quarter with him. He is a low key person which made it that much more enjoyable and he was willing to tailor the walk to our interests.

Great Guide, well informed about the history of New Orleans through food. Food and drinks were excellent. Go hungry!

Overall great experience. Got to try a variety of food and drinks at some great spots in the city
