R-Line Gourmet Food Tour Coming Saturday

taste On Saturday, April 10th from 2 pm-5 pm, Capital Area Transit, Downtown Raleigh Alliance, and Taste Carolina Gourmet Food Tours are teaming up for a special R-LINE Gourmet Food Tour . Experience some of Raleigh’s most unique and dynamic restaurants in one fun-filled afternoon while riding the R-LINE, downtown Raleigh’s circulator.

As part of the tour, participants will enjoy the opportunity to talk with chefs and owners and sample their food, sourced locally from farm-to-table, before hopping back on the bus to the next stop. From innovative southern and ethnic cuisine to fine-dining eateries to some of downtown’s most reputable bars, there’s something for everyone! “What better way to get to know a place and its people than to eat its food?” says Joe Philipose, co-founder of Taste Carolina Food Tours. “Our tours are as compelling for residents as for visitors; they give locals a unique opportunity to be face-to-face with chefs and artisans they’ve only read about,” adds Philipose.

The Tour will begin at Dos TaQuitos Centro ( map it ) located at 106 S. Wilmington Street in downtown Raleigh. Attendees need to arrive at 1:45 pm and the tour will begin at 2 pm.

The Tour includes stops at:

  • Dos TaQuitos Centro
  • 18 Seaboard
  • Zely & Ritz
  • The Cupcake Shoppe
  • Busy Bee
  • The Mint
  • Foundation (and features Escazu Artisan Chocolates and baked goods from Annelore’s Authentic German Bakery)

Cost: $39.50 ($41.49 with online registration fee). Participants must register in advance. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes as there will be much walking.
