About DC Metro Food Tours
Our initial desire to start DC Metro Food Tours was brought about by a lifelong love for food, and a desire to help promote locally owned and operated restaurants.
As we began to explore the many diverse neighborhoods within the DC Metro area, we found a variety of delicious foods served at unique, often family run establishments.
We believe a Food Tour should be a striking harmony of a neighborhood’s local cuisine, history, and architecture. The food you are served during our Food Tours accurately reflects both the people and history of each neighborhood as much as possible. We work to carefully develop each Food Tour in order to ensure the creation of a true culinary experience.
The dishes served on our food tours are offered in a logical manner, layering flavors, textures, and tastes throughout the food tours.
On our tours, we will not quickly grab a bite from a restaurant and leave; rather, we sit down and support each place by enjoying a specially designed dish. Don't expect samples or tastes on our tours. Don’t expect a menu in any of our restaurants. Your selections have been carefully chosen for you in order to bring you the best each establishment has to offer. The end result is a VIP style experience at each of our restaurants and throughout the tour.
We are devoted to preserving and continuing the culinary heritage of each DC area neighborhood. Your participation on our food tours helps to support each restaurant and shop we visit.
We hope to open your mind and palette to the sights, sounds and flavors that Washington DC has to offer. The area best known for its museums and monuments, is also full of exciting, historic neighborhoods that offer a wide range of cuisine that will change your expectations of our nation’s capitol.
