13-15 NOVEMBER 2024


RSVP to lunch on Thursday 2 November, from 12:25-14:00.

The best way to explore the Big Easy? By eating your way through its many iconic dining joints. That’s why we’ve scoured the city to bring you lunch at one of its hottest culinary destinations on Thursday 2 November. Browse the all-star lineup below, then make your selection via the booking form.



700 Magazine Street #101, New Orleans, LA 70130

Distance from The Sugar Mill: 0.5 miles | 12 mins walk

Southern Italy collides with Louisiana in the most delicious way at Gianna, whose close relationships with local farms mean dishes are invariably seasonal and the produce — tomatoes, house-cured meats and hand-rolled pastas — tastes impossibly fresh.



1016 Annunciation Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

Distance from The Sugar Mill: 0.2 miles | 5 mins walk

Looking to sample authentic NOLA fare during your time on SET? Then book Annunciation, who specialise in Creole and Cajun comfort food: fried green tomatoes, seasonal gumbo and Shrimp Étouffée all feature.



701 S Peters St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Distance from The Sugar Mill: 0.3 miles | 8 mins walk

With an impressive 18-foot fresh fish bar (yes, really) Briquette is the choice for you if you’re in the Big Easy for its iconic seafood selection.


King Brasserie + Bar

521 Tchoupitoulas St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Distance from The Sugar Mill: 0.6 miles | 12 mins walk

The flagship eatery at Kimpton Fontenot (a selected SET hotel partner) is a ‘celebration of the shore’ — from the Gulf and Amalfi Coasts to the French Riviera. Delightfully unpretentious, you’ll enjoy thoughtful cooking with added Louisiana spice.


Tommy's Cuisine

746 Tchoupitoulas St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Distance from The Sugar Mill: 0.4 miles | 8 mins walk

Italian creole comfort favourites just like grandma used to make: think pull-apart garlic rolls, warm burrata, turtle soup and aubergine parmigiana.



You must make your lunch bookings via the SET lunch booking page here. You can only book for yourself – so if you want to dine with colleagues or friends, make sure you ask them to reserve the same restaurant as well! Please let us know of any allergies when you make your booking.

Your hosted lunch will take the form of a set menu, buffet or family style option at one of New Orleans’ most coveted eateries – choose from one of five restaurants. You’re welcome to order outside of these lunch options, but it’s not included in the complimentary SET menu. Alcoholic beverages are not included, but you can order your drink of choice directly when you arrive.

If your plans change, please try and cancel your reservation as soon as possible — 24 hours before, if you can – and if you have any questions, just drop by our team info desk at Open House or the SET showfloor at The Sugar Mill.

Transfers will not be provided as each of the restaurants are just a convenient walk from The Sugar Mill — for exact distances, see above. Your afternoon meetings will begin promptly at 2pm, so be sure to make it back to The Sugar Mill in plenty of time. Bon appetit!
