Tammany Taste of Summer 2019: Nearly two dozen Northshore restaurants offering dining deals

Nearly two dozen Northshore restaurants will offer deals during the 2019 Tammany Taste of Summer this August.

Participating Northshore restaurants will be offering specials and prix fixe brunch, lunch and dinner deals from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31.

The month-long celebration of culinary deals and events is similar to the annual Coolinary program adopted by many New Orleans-area restaurants. The St. Tammany Parish Tourist Commission first launched the promotion in 2018 featuring both landmark Northshore restaurants and rising stars.

Many of St. Tammany Parish’s best restaurants will be offering prix-fixe menus at reduced prices for brunch, lunch and dinner, including Del Porto, Annadele’s, Palmettos, Café Lynn, Dakota, The Wine Garden, Gallagher’s, Oxlot 9, Hambone, and LOLA among others.

Prices for two-course and three-course prix fixe meals range from $20 to $30.

In addition to restaurant deals, the event also boasts a calendar of fun culinary-related events hosted by Northshore-area restaurants.

Abita Brewery hosts a Northshore Food Truck Roundup on Aug. 2., and Del Porto Ristorante hosts a “Bubbles & Bites” Bubbly Wine Fest on Aug. 29.

Bella Cucina La Cornue Cooking School will host a free open house on Saturdays in August, featuring culinary artisan baking demos with complimentary house-made bakery items, small bites and wine.

Local hotels will also participate by offering discounted rates for the Tammany Taste of Summer promotion in August. Visitors wanting to spend a night or two can book a room directly from the Tammany Taste of Summer website.
