Tour Stops du Jour
Laura’s Pralines and Candies
Munch on Creole pralines and hand-dipped chocolates whose roots date back to the 18th century – the recipes haven’t changed! Nestled in the French Quarter, New Orleans’ oldest candy store is sweeter than ever.
Established in 1950, this third generation French Quarter landmark dishes out the best sandwiches in New Orleans. Enjoy a muffaletta with all of its classic fixings.
The Old Coffeepot
Classic Cajun and Creole cuisine has been the calling card here since 1894. Try the same jambalaya that Guy Fieri featured on “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.”
This restaurant was previously a Spanish armory before it started serving classic Creole dishes in an elegant setting. We’ll try their house specialty – a beef brisket po-boy served with a Creole sauce with just a touch of horseradish.
New Orleans Creole Cookery
You have to try the famous bread pudding at the New Orleans Creole Cookery. You haven’t experienced New Orleans until you’ve stepped into this iconic eatery, courtesy of A.J. and Anna Tusa of the famous New Orleans Tusa restaurant family. The Cookery promises a shot of new generation energy combined with the city’s most treasured cooking traditions in a setting that really speaks to the way people dine today.
