The North End of Boston is one of the premiere food neighborhoods in the country, but it can be overwhelming. The best way to see it – and even better, taste it – is with an expert!
So join us for “Si Mangia Bene” – the classic North End Market Tour from Michele Topor’s Boston Food Tours. We’ll receive a brief history of the North End neighborhood, a description of the evolution of Italian American food, and historical insights into the North End community and Italian food culture. And, of course, there will be the tastings! Insights on new restaurant “finds” and secrets on where to find authentic ingredients, and how to buy and prepare them will be revealed as we visit a pastry shop, a coffee/spice store, a greengrocer, a salumeria (deli), and a liquor store.
And could it be that all of this will be calorie-free? It won’t be for lack of trying! It’s a three-hour walking tour. Add to that time for shopping at Faneuil Hall Marketplace!
