Historic Del Ray Food Tour


What has now become one of the most desirable places to live in the Washington DC metro area, the neighborhood within Alexandria known as Del Ray, was not only one of the earliest commuter suburbs close to Alexandria but also a separate town with a Main Street that was typical of small-town America.

Del Ray has maintained its small-town feel today as local shops and restaurants line the comfortable and friendly main street. The culinary scene has continued to evolve as creative chefs develop innovative dishes utilizing food sourced from around the region.

Your Del Ray Food Tour may include the following specialties:

  • Locally sourced fish tacos at a Mexican Taqueria
  • Ethiopian lentil soup served with freshly baked bread
  • Virginia wines and cheeses at a chic, modern tavern
  • Several styles of BBQ at a restaurant featured on ABC's Shark Tank
  • Coffee, gourmet hot chocolate, and Southern Style Pralines at a chocolate confectionary

All dishes served are included in the tour. Enough food is served that for most participants, dinner afterwards will not be needed. Seating and special service is provided at all restaurants throughout the tour.
