What is an immersive experience?

An immersive event transports guests to a world that is interactive.  This special excursion allows participants to take a mildly active role in the evening while observing vignettes and performances inside the fantastical story.

Who is the chef?

Last year, Look Don’t Tell showcased Melissa Araujo, Founder & Chef at Saveur Catering, a Louisiana certified farm to table catering company.  Melissa’s Sicilian and Honduran roots influenced her delicate and refined preparation of the six course Creole meal for our guests.  Melissa’s experience includes Doris Metropolitan, Restaurant R’evolution and working alongside James Beard awarded chefs, Susan Spicer and Alon Shaya.  Our European trained wine and cocktail specialist was Chelsea Gober whose skills have been honed in New York and locally at Lilette as the Beverage Director. Stay tuned for further details on our skilled culinary specialists for this year’s event.

Where is the event?

Guests meet at a secret, historic location in the New Orleans French Quarter and must be ready for departure at 7PM prompt!  Guests are then whisked away to a private, magnificent estate along the grand Mississippi River. Details for the meet up location are presented 24 hours prior to the evening.

Why must I give up my cell phone?
