North End Neighborhood Tour – Boston’s Little Italy
NOTE: Stops may be subject to change without notice.
Boston Foodie Tours (“BFT”) award-winning best eats, culinary education, and our city’s rich history. Our 70+ tour partners include many Best of Boston winners, James Beard Award winners, food institutions, and the life. BFT earned the 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and maintains a 5-star guest rating on Yelp. It has also been featured in both domestic and international press.
Iconic chowder, award-winning pizza, Boston’s best Italian sub, a Food Network magazine-featured cupcake, vinegars and oils, Italian bread, Italian pastry, and a pasta finale. This tour has it all!
How do we distinguish our food tour from an authentic Italian food tour? Our tour mixes the old and the new, and amounts to dinner. On this tour, you’ll experience the best of the current North End, which includes a mix of Italian and non-Italian food.
The tour group meets in the lobby of the lovely Millennium Bostonian Hotel, which is located steps away from Quincy Market. First stop? Chowder at the country’s longest, continuously-running restaurant. (Okay, technically, not in the North End, but we don’t think that you’ll mind.) Next up? Boston’s best pizza! But only the ORIGINAL will do. After a few tales about the darker side of Boston, we’ll put Jimmy Fallon’s favorite Boston mercato to the test. Then, for a sweet break, we’ll visit a charming bakery that’s been rated one of “America’s Twenty Best Dessert Stops” by Fodor’s. Don’t blink, or you’ll miss our next stops. They’re two hidden gems, and, when we say *hidden*, we mean *hidden*. Freshly-made pastas, mozzarella, and oils and vinegars all await us before our final stop: a pasta course at one of the North End’s finest restaurants. And how could we end our tour without offering you dolce for the road? Our Italian grandmothers wouldn’t hear of it!
Join us as we “Stroll. Sample. Savor. Repeat” through one of Boston’s favorite neighborhoods.
