Our fun three-hour off-the-beaten-path neighborhood walking food tours will take you outside the usual touristy areas of Newport into the heart of Newport’s history. As we walk between restaurants and eateries we will share some colorful historic stories and landmarks of the early founding days of Newport. We will introduce you to six diverse eateries where you will learn about their food offerings and background of each restaurant and their owners. We don't want to kill the surprise so we tell you a little about what to expect in our diverse tasting offerings. 1) We start with a good old fashion American Street Food made from scratch. 2) We take you to the newest spin on a cafe with a very cool vibe. 3) You will get a taste of an iconic Caribbean favorite. 4) We add a little refreshing Newport Glam to the mix. 5) If a taste of France sounds enticing it's all right here in this ever-changing seasonal menu in a most beautiful brasserie. 6) Lastly, we take you to a historic tavern where fresh and inspired Mexican food is their jam. Included with the 6+ food tastings will be 3 alcohol pairings. We look forward to hosting you!

When I travel I love going to places that have great food, interesting history and architecture . I seek out these places always asking where the locals go, so I can get an authentic experience. As a real estate agent for 20 yrs. in RI, I have made it my business to know the happenings within neighborhoods, it's food and its culture, becoming an ambassador of this wonderful state. Starting my walking food tours in 2015, it seemed only natural that a great way to support all the creative food innovators emerging in our community of small businesses was to share it with guests through my neighborhood walking food tours. We received the Editor's Choice Award by Yankee Magazine for Best Walking Tour and RIMonthly's Best of RI Food Tour recommendations in many publications like Thrillist,The Daily Meal, Boston Globe,Vacationidea and more.
