Noshing by Neighborhood in New Orleans

Dishcrawl food tours host edible adventures for New Orleans food fans.

Part neighborhood icebreaker, part culinary social networking, Dishcrawl food tours have made their way to the Crescent City. Focusing on “making life more delicious,” the national start-up organizes intimate edible adventures of specific nabes through local Dishcrawl ambassador Michelle Mashon. Tickets are sold per neighborhood, without listing what the stops will be: The motive behind the mystery is for ’crawlers to keep an open mind and give restaurants they might otherwise overlook a try. Eaters meet the chefs and learn about their food, as well as where it comes from. Expect three to four stops, communal seating at long tables, a relaxed atmosphere, plenty of conversation and a very diverse crowd. Sign up early, seats are limited and sell out fast.
