    What to Expect
    Join us for a walking tour of Capitol Hill, a 200 year old melting pot of cultures, ethnicities, and religions. The country's largest Victorian neighborhood has been the home to laborers, craftsmen, and members of Congress alike.

    Enjoy a series of dishes from restaurants and shops nestled in quaint row houses, clustered down barracks row, and located inside the district's longest running market. Your culinary experience may include the following specialties:
    • 18th Century inspired Anglo-Indian Cuisine
    • Award winning Soul Food
    • A variety of traditional Salvadorian dishes and beverages
    • Hand made pastas from a critically acclaimed Italian restaurant
    • Regional American desserts from the area's newest neighborhood restaurantLet us take you to the neighborhood John Philip Sousa and J. Edgar Hoover called home. Come see where Roberta Flack started her career. 

    Enjoy a variety of food that follows the culinary history of this diverse Washington DC neighborhood. All dishes served are included in the tour. Enough food is served that for most participants, dinner afterwards will not be needed. Seating and special service is provided at all restaurants throughout the tour. The dishes you will try resemble small meals rather than traditional tastings. We want you to be able to experience the best each restaurant has to offer.

    We enjoyed our tour with Brianna! Four girlfriends and i did this tour for our friends 24th birthday. We thought the Spanish tapas and Belgian food was delicious, the 3rd restaurant (Salvadoran) and the pop tart dessert were so-so. Brianna was a good tour guide,...More

The tastings were Spanish (elegant), Belgian (meh), Salvadoran (meh), and...a bakery-made Pop Tart! (Very good crust.) Briana gave us tips on eateries near Dupont Circle where we stayed: Smoke and Barrel...More

    It was the perfect day for a gourmet stroll around Capitol Hill. Everyone was in good spirits thanks to the warm spring sunshine. Sadly, our guide, Mike was having an ‘off’ day. I don’t think he was feeling too well. His occasional snippets of history...More
