Food Lover's Guide to New Orleans

Food Lover's Guide to New Orleans

As the birthplace of gumbo, muffuletta sandwiches and po'boys, New Orleans offers no shortage of good eats. And we're here to guide you to the best of them. Below are our top three districts to get you started on your tasty tour of the Big Easy.

French Quarter

In the heart of the city, New Orleans' historic French Quarter is stuffed with iconic eats such as beignets, po'boys, muffuletta and gumbo. Along the way, a local guide adds flavorful commentary on the origins of the dishes and their names, plus background on Louisiana's geography and history. Some tours include stops for cocktails, or newer establishments serving up innovative eats that could include pork belly steam buns and bacon pecan brittle. If you're looking to bring some goodies home, opt for a tour that stops at either a popular hot sauce bar, or the French Market (the oldest open-air market in the United States).

Garden District

Street cars and historic mansions make it feel as if you have stepped back in time in the Garden District. This timeless look and feel extends to the pubs, candy shops, and restaurants that pop into on St Charles Avenue. Tours begin in the French Quarter, but expect your guide to regale you with stories about this district's architecture, language and cuisine. A high point: Your stop at Bellocq inside the Hotel Modern for a punch cocktail that dates back to the 1800s.

Carrollton

Get off the beaten path with a walking food tour of tree-lined Carrollton, home to both Tulane and Loyola universities. Along Oak Street, the district's main shopping stretch, find tucked-away treasures in between local favorites such as Jacque-Imo's and Cowbell for classic Southern cooking, or trendy Chiba Samplings for Japanese fusion fare. Your guide will point out historic storefronts and divulge insider secrets on the area as you relax with a fresh-squeezed juice, get a jolt at a classic coffee shop, and experience a side of New Orleans many visitors don't see.
