Person – $89
It’s true: what most people think of as delicacies, we include in our daily diet here in New
Orleans. Seafood is a cornerstone of our culture. And we want to share it with you!
This full lunch walking tour will guide you through a cornucopia of seafood delights, with our
local blue crab, crawfish, Gulf oysters, and some of the most beautiful shrimp you’ve ever seen.
While you feast, we will also discuss how our seafood is different from the rest of world. You’ll
learn how oysters are cultivated, why we’re so crazy for crawfish, and how locals “go crabbing.”
But that’s all just the appetizer.
After a few short tasting stops, it’s time for deviled crab and a down-home, picnic-style shrimp
boil! You’ll be able to see the pot, smell the seasonings, and learn the secrets for hosting your
own boil back home. Then, roll up those sleeves—we’re going to eat! Whether dining al fresco
on a French Quarter balcony or indoors (weather dependent), we’re talking picnic tables topped
with newspapers and the whole shebang. Plenty of large, peel-and- eat shrimp to go around plus the other boil staples: potatoes, corn on the cob, and sausage. Finished with dessert…it just can’t get any better than this!
Seating is limited. Price includes all food and restaurant costs; alcoholic beverages can be purchased separately.
This is a walking tour (about 0.6 mile total) on uneven sidewalks, so wear comfortable
shoes and prepare for the weather (sun, cold, or rain, depending on the season). All
guests must be able to walk up and down stairs, twice. This tour does not accommodate
vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, salt-free dietary restrictions or seafood allergies of any
kind. At least two people are needed to run this tour (may be booked separately).
We will meet outside of Southern Candymakers, 1010 Decatur Street in the French Quarter.
