Let us take you to the neighborhood John Philip Sousa and J. Edgar Hoover called home. Come see where Roberta Flack started her career. Enjoy a variety of food that follows the culinary history of this diverse Washington DC neighborhood.
Enough food is served that most participants will not need dinner after the tour. All dishes are served sitting down, so you can enjoy the ambiance of each restaurant while trying their specialties, and hearing their stories. All dishes served are included in the tour. Seating and special service is provided at all restaurants throughout the tour.
We recommend you eating a light brunch before the tour rather than lunch. The dishes you will try resemble small meals rather than traditional tastings. We want you to be able to experience the best each restaurant has to offer.
