What is a food tour
A Food Tour combines a historic, cultural, and architectural tour (typically by foot), with visits to a number of acclaimed local restaurants and/or establishments to enjoy a specially created dish (or a family style meal) that brings together the best the restaurant has to offer while paying homage to the neighborhood and city. Standard Food Tours visit up to 4 stops during a 3 hour tour.
Food Tour vs Dine Around vs Progressive meal
A Dine Around visits fewer restaurants during the event (2-3 stops) with more food, often several courses at each place. A Dine Around is more customizable; we can set start time, theme, day, neighborhood, transportation, and alcohol pairings to your needs. In addition, we run Dine Arounds for up to 400 people.
A Progressive Dinner is a more traditional way to try several restaurants. Instead of dishes at each place, guests enjoy an appetizer at one stop, main course at another, and dessert at the final place.
