Dr. Gumbo’s Food History Tour

Sample the diversity of our rich culinary heritage! Up to 6 locations!

Down here we’re passionate about eating, so along with your guide, you will visit up to 6 locations: classic Creole restaurants, neighborhood sandwich shops, hot sauce bars, artisanal candy stores, and more. Once inside you’ll sample different foods that represent the breadth and diversity of our culinary heritage: dishes like gumbo, Creole brisket, muffulettas, poboys, pralines, and much more.

We cover New Orleans’ various restaurant family dynasties, we discuss recipes old and new, we visit restaurants that pre-date the American Civil War, we recommend places to eat and places to shop. When possible the chefs come out to visit the groups and discuss their influences and passions. And with so many dining options in New Orleans, why not try 6 different places in one fell swoop?!

The 3-hour walking tour is conducted at a leisurely pace and with small groups. Most of the restaurant stops feature fully stocked bars if you’d like to enjoy a cold beverage (adult or otherwise!) during the tour.

Extra: We go rain or shine. This tour features a set menu and does not have a gluten-free, pork-free, or vegetarian option. However, please notify us of any food allergies (not aversions) during check-out.
