Tammany Taste of Summer returns for deals on Northshore dining, attractions

MANDEVILLE, La. (NOLA WEEKEND) - Tammany Taste of Summer kicks off its celebration of deals on dining and attractions on the Northshore this August.

For 2022, locals and visitors have even more time to take advantage of deals. Organizers extend the promotion past the one-month mark from Aug. 1 to Sept. 15.

“Tammany Taste of Summer has become a flagship event for the Louisiana Northshore.

Many St. Tammany restaurants will offer prix-fixe menus and other dining discounts. Some notable North Shore restaurants participating include Palmettos on the Bayou in Slidell, The English Tea Room & Eatery in Covington, Tchefuncte’s Restaurant in Madisonville, Avila Grill in Mandeville, Big Mama’s Country Kitchen in Slidell and Gallagher’s Grill and Gallagher’s on Front Street.
