I've been to New Orleans dozens of times so I was searching out new and different things to do. Came across the Southern Food and Beverage Museum on trip advisor and decided to check it out. We had gone to the WW II museum and it looked nearby so we walked over. (The walk was a bit longer than I... 更多
The SFBM gives the low down on the history of local food (know the difference between Cajun and Creole? they do) and cocktails. And a overview of southern food with displays from the "Southern" states. The Monday or Thursday cooking lesson and lunch, or any special event they put on is definitely worth it. Great fun place.
A small place with lots of information including sections of different historical food items. Food by states including Georgia, LA, Mississippi etc. I enjoyed the area for cocktails and alcohol (though not a drinker) including all sorts of bourbons and cocktail glasses. Even goo goo clusters were represented in the food section! We happened to be there at a time... 更多
This museum has tributes to individual southern states and their specialities. Included are an Absinthe Bar collection, a tribute to Al Copeland (Popeye's), a Martini Bar wall, exhibit from Tujague's Restaurant, and much, much more. They have a small gift area (where they really need to sell pralines!).

Totally underwhelmed--- can hardly call this a museum using the broadest of definitions-. First Impression is here is a whole bunch of stuff--lets see if we can somehow make it interesting---contrived would be a one word definition----by no means a museum
My friends are foodies as we are so we decided to checkout the new food Museum. It isn't quite done and is a work in progress but it was great to see the local food of the south being shown. The big corporations like coke have not participated yet but Popeyes is and that makes it worth it. So nice... 更多
Very interesting place. We joined the Monday Lunch cooking demo. It was good but not like other demos I have experienced. You really just watch with little teaching or instruction going on. You do receive recipe cards and that does help so you can follow along. The finished product, jambalaya, was very fresh & tasty.
