Next up is Julia Child’s favorite neighborhood market. Yep, that’s her in the window with her butcher, Jack. Also included is a three-time “Best of Boston” chocolatier, and a specialty nuts shop that’s a multiple SOFI Award winner. We’ll then visit a Boston breakfast institution that has seen the likes of several celebrities. After a stroll through the country’s first, botanical public garden, we’ll introduce you a an off-the-beaten-path wine and cheese shop that’s always a tour fave. After we enjoy a savory treat at the third most popular bakery in the country, which just happens to be owned by a Throwdown Against Bobby Flay winner/3-time James Beard Award finalist, we’ll end our “standard” tour with “Presidential” Chowder. “Premium” tour guests will conclude the tour with a sit-down. elegant dessert at one of Boston’s finest restaurants.
