Southern Supper Series

New Louisville Food Tours

Join Mint Julep Tours for themed progressive dinners inspired by the South’s most famous suppers. Hop around the city’s best restaurants for a food tour with three expertly-crafted dishes from top chefs during this summer’s Southern Supper Series. Each month, three new stops and three new chefs will plate their take on a classic for the innovative Urban Adventure. The first three exclusive dinners will center around fried chicken (July), biscuits (August) and pickles (September). The cost is $119 per person and includes three dishes with paired cocktails, guided transportation, and tax and restaurant gratuity at each venue.


Gettin’ Pickled
Wednesday, Sept. 20 from 5:45 to 9:30 p.m.

Toward the end of summer, chefs across Kentucky preserve the produce of the season by pickling.

All tours start and end at first listed restaurant. Additional alcohol may be purchased by guests at each stop. Adult beverages are also permitted on the Mint Julep Tours vehicle. Guests may be required to show ID. Mint Julep Tours encourages guests to drink responsibly.
