Here are the places we went:
Cafe Du Monde French Market (https://goo.gl/maps/CMpWpkiHZ6Htsjdf8) – Easily the most recognizable and iconic coffee shops in New Orleans, and probably the United States, Cafe Du Monde serves unique chicory coffee and beignet. Although seemingly always packed, it’s a great place to get your day started when you’re in the French Quarter.
Central Grocery and Deli (https://goo.gl/maps/rawmkK8vuhkqGKcNA) Price – $22.60 – Next up we walked down the road to Central Grocery and Deli, home of the original muffuletta, a gigantic round sandwich with a variety of meats and cheeses, but most importantly an olive salad. The olives are what totally set it apart.
Coop’s Place (https://goo.gl/maps/5BBbNZSjKA9syZez7) – Price – $29 – Unfortunately Coop’s Place is only over 21, and they don’t allow filming inside. So we took our rabbit sausage jambalaya and étouffée to go. Both dishes were delicious, especially the jambalaya!
Verti Marte (https://goo.gl/maps/aXaWVqeiBxn2Nck3A) – All That Jazz Po’ boy – $14.68 – Next up on this ultimate food tour in New Orleans, we stopped at Verti Marte for a giant Po’boy that included just about everything you could possibly imagine. It was a heavy sandwich but totally worth it.
Galatoire’s (https://goo.gl/maps/nL31RS5kNsYKxnzX6) – Price – $40 – $60 per person – Next up for dinner, I made a reservation at Galatoire’s, known to be one of the best restaurants in New Orleans. Although they didn’t invent Oysters Rockefeller, they make a great version of them, and for me that was one of the highlights. Also, don’t miss the flaming coffee to finish your meal!
Brennan’s (https://g.page/BrennansNewOrleans?share) – Price – $22.04 – Finally completely unplanned, because we were right around the corner, we headed to Brennan’s where they invented Bananas Foster! As Derek said, the best bananas foster he’s ever had.
And that wraps up this ultimate food tour in the New Orleans French Quarter. It was an amazing day exploring Creole and Cajun cuisine and culture in New Orleans!
