Best Chefs of New Orleans Food Tour

Dine at the best of the best in one of the food capitals of the world!

The world comes to New Orleans to eat. And eat, we shall! Restaurants from award-winning chefs Emeril Lagasse, Susan Spicer, Slade Rushing, and more are all on your menu, making this walking tour a truly one-of-a-kind dining experience!

This easy stroll in the French Quarter begins with some insight into the Creole and Cajun cuisines before dining at our first restaurant. During this progressive-style dinner at four of the most notable restaurants in New Orleans, we learn about each chef while tasting their creations. We finish our memorable tour of the best chefs in New Orleans with a delectable dessert and coffee.

Seating is extremely limited at just eight guests per tour. Price includes all food and restaurant costs, coffee with dessert, and tour commentary regarding the chefs, foods, and culinary history of New Orleans. You will also receive a colorful program as a memento of this experience with chef bios, restaurant information, recipes, and more.

Other things to know…

Dress code: No cut-off jeans or flip-flops. No sleeveless shirts/tank tops or sandals for men.

While tour guests may not always be able to meet these popular chefs in person during the tour, they are treated to VIP service at each restaurant and will eat foods skillfully invented by each namesake chef.

This is a walking tour (about 0.8 miles total) on uneven sidewalks, so wear comfortable shoes and prepare for the weather (sun, cold, or rain, depending on the season).

This tour may not be a good fit for diets that prohibit both seafood and pork since many dishes contain one or the other. At least two people are needed to run this tour (may be booked separately).
