    Stop At: Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA

    The walking tour begins inside the award-winning Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans. You will begin with three dishes: Alligator Boudin with 3 Mustard Sauce, BBQ Oysters and an Alligator Sausage & Seafood Gumbo. We also kick the party off with our first cocktail here: the Cat 5 Hurricane.

    Moving four blocks down you will enter Pepper Palace, where we begin to discuss the Cajun influence, and sample an unlimited variety of hot sauces, BBQ sauces, Buffalo Wings sauces, salsas, dry rubs and more. Customers on the tour will also receive a free bottle of Louisiana-style hot sauce.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: French Quarter, New Orleans, LA

    The next stop is two blocks away and known as St. Lawrence, an off-the-beaten-path gastropub with a huge beer selection, craft daiquiris & upscale bar bites. You will experience a true New Orleans rite-of-passage: a Pimm’s Cup cocktail “to-go”.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Royal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

    From there you move 4 blocks up to Leah’s Pralines: a 3rd generation family-owned candy store. You will sample traditional pralines and their unique Bacon Pecan Brittle.

    Three more blocks over and you will arrive at the award-winning Dickie Brennan’s Tableau to sip your next cocktail: the refreshing French 75, a combo of fresh lemon, brandy and bubbles. As you learn about Louisiana’s 19th century influences you will sample artisanal cheese boards of both and imported local delicacies.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Decatur Street, New Orleans, LA 70116

    From there you pass through famous Jackson Square towards Café du Monde, then along the French Market area, ultimately landing at the James Beard Award-nominated Cane & Table.
