Join us for Old Monterey’s original culinary walking adventure! We’re proud to be Monterey’s first and only walking food tour, and we’d love for you to experience it with us! On this tour, we’ll take you through 5-6 different restaurants and food shops along the side streets of downtown Monterey. You’ll taste all the culture embedded here, from little bites, to coffee on draft, to Italian, Indian, and Greek food (just to name a few). We’ll also familiarize you with some local history, go over some of California’s firsts in Monterey, and fill you in on some things the locals hardly even know! You better come hungry when you join in on this tour, because you’ll quickly find there’s a lot more going on downtown than expected, so come on board and have the time of your life! We can’t give away all of the secrets, but here’s a couple of things you can expect: Eating food with a Big Little Lies connection. Tasting food as you check out California’s first safe. Enjoying beer and wine from local breweries and wineries. And more!
Casey & co hosts: Felipe & Greg Casey-I am a lover of great food, wine, & culture and have always enjoyed cooking and trying new foods. Now I'm excited to share this passion with you! I fell in love with the food and cultural diversity the Central Coast has to offer. In 2016 we jumped at the opportunity to move to Monterey. Felipe grew up living and traveling all over the world. Because of this, he was exposed to foods from many different cultures, & also learned how to speak several different languages. He has many hobbies-wood work, brewing beer, gardening & of course, anything to do with food & wine. Greg-I am from RI and grew up in a family that personified the “melting pot” that is New England. Each family holiday meant an eclectic mix of different foods & traditions which fueled my interest to constantly try new things.
