Walk Eat Nashville is expanding, taking its popular walking food tours into a second neighborhood--Midtown.
The new Midtown tours follow the same format as the existing Historic East Nashville tours: six tasting stops over three hours paired with a 1.5-mile leisurely walk. During the tour, guests interact with chefs and sample some of the flavors turning Nashville into the new culinary capital of the South.
“Nashville’s culinary roots took hold in Midtown a generation ago,” said Karen-Lee Ryan, Walk Eat Nashville Founder & Owner. “It’s still home to long-standing destinations and impressive newcomers. Midtown is filled with great food--and lots of interesting stories.”
As a former journalist, Ryan enjoys sharing details about local landmarks and lore between restaurant tastings. Her new tour meanders through the “Rock Block” and the Vanderbilt campus before skirting Music Row.
The Midtown walking food tours take place Saturdays from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and feature the following locations: Mason’s, Elliston Place Soda Shop, Tavern, Midtown Cafe, Gigi’s Cupcakes and Union Common.
East Nashville tours run 1:30-4:30pm Thursdays and 11a.m.-2 p.m. Fridays. Stops include places such as Lockeland Table, Marché Artisan Foods, Five Points Pizza, Edley’s East and Chocolate F/X.
Tickets cost $49 per person, which includes six tastings and an engaging tour guide. Advance purchase is required. For additional information, call 615-587-6138.
