Who are Sidewalk Tastes for?
Sidewalk Tastes are designed by locals, for locals. Tastes will help you discover or rediscover culinary icons and neighborhood insights while delivering a new perspective on local culture.
Sidewalk Tastes are the perfect answer for “what do you want to do this weekend?” Tastes are great for dates, special occasions, team outings, celebrations, showing off to out-of-town guests, and work trip excursions.
How long is a Sidewalk Taste?
Most Tastes range from 2 to 3 hours and are around 1 mile in walking distance.

Do I have to complete the entire Sidewalk Taste in one day?
No. You can enjoy your Sidewalk Taste over the course of your selected weekend. Take your time, enjoy the neighborhood, go window shopping, and digest. Resume your Sidewalk Taste when you are ready.
How much food is provided on a Sidewalk Taste?
Sidewalk Tastes provide a pleasant meal for a moderate eater. Since the meal is spread over 2-3 hours and there is some walking between stops, you should feel happily satiated rather than uncomfortably full.
