Whether you are a visitor to Atlanta, Georgia or a local and want to rediscover your neighborhood…this experience is for you if you like to walk, listen, see and TASTE. You'll have a fun time savoring popular dishes just for our small group. This food tour includes a selection of top items from a mix of four famous and hidden gem Midtown restaurants eaten progressively over the course of 3 1/2 hours. What's on the menu? Fun mixes of Korean/Latin fusion, Southern classics like low country shrimp and grits and some surprises along the way. Let a local show you a little slice of the South and get you involved in the Peachtree Street food scene so you leave with a new experience under your (slightly loosened) belt.
I'm a native of Atlanta and I graduated from the University of Georgia. I began my career as a journalist and have written/edited for Lonely Planet, CNN (in Atlanta), Atlanta Business Chronicle, Que Pasa Magazine, etc. In 2009 I founded the first food tour in the Caribbean: Flavors of San Juan Food and Culture Tours, highlighting Puerto Rico's unique cuisine, culture and history. I also give food tours in St Thomas USVI, Sint Maarten and I am excited to return to my native city and host food tours here as well. Hosting will be done by myself and/or Rachel, Leigh, Sarah or Dwight
