Orlando

Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen

Created in his honor Walter Tabony (Tibby) was born and lived in New Orleans and lived to be 93. Tibby used to brag about his plans if the Saints ever made the Super Bowl: “Breakfast would be beignets at Café du Monde at the French Market and then a two-block walk for Bloody Marys at the Court of Two Sisters. Catch a Mardi Gras parade on Canal Street and grab an oyster Po’boy at Johnny’s in the Quarter. I would then stroll over to the Superdome parking lot for tailgating, then enjoy an early dinner at Galatoire’s. Taste some Hurricanes at Pat O’Brien’s and then watch the Saints win the Super Bowl at the Old Absinthe House. I would head back to Canal Street for another parade, then close out the night on Bourbon Street. After the celebration I would sleep all day on Monday.” There are three locations of this New Orleans-themed spot.
