Your Progressive Culinary Experience

Our 4-course progressive prix-fixe dining experience visits restaurants in DTLA that are Bib Gourmand winners and have been awarded Michelin Stars – with a sprinkling of culinary history and stories in between.

Our tour focuses on quality over quantity.  We will sample 4 dishes, one from each restaurant. This culinary experience will visit Michelin Starred restaurants and Bib Gourmands such as Badmaash, Preux and Proper, Orsa and Winston and more.

POSSIBLE TASTINGS* (EACH TOUR INCLUDES 3 TASTINGS!)

Try the “Bear and the Winston” with yuzu kosho kick sauce at a newly starred Michelin restaurant. (Orsa & Winston)

 

Taste traditional potato & sweet pea samosas from an Indian restaurant that’s anything but traditional (Badmaash)

  • This is a social dining experience. We feel the best dining experiences are the ones in which we’re seated around tables sharing food and stories with others. Therefore, we have a 4-person minimum and a 20-person maximum. If the minimum number of guests is not reached, we will contact you to reschedule onto another time or date, or offer a refund.
  • Want to upgrade to a private tour? Email lagroups@avitaltours.com to request your date and time of choosing.
  • Gratuities not included – please consider tipping your guide
  • Parking: We understand that parking may be difficult in Downtown, so if you’re coming from the Westside (Santa Monica, Culver City, etc.), we highly recommend taking the Expo line metro. Otherwise, there are multiple recommended parking garages near to the start location in DTLA ranging from $5-$20 per day.
  • Advance Tickets are required

What Others Are Saying

Spending three hours in DTLA it’s past, present and future was a blast! Our guide Penny is informative, warm and witty. Her passion for food, history and architecture is infectious. Our group had a wonderful afternoon getting to know each other and the neighborhood. The portions of food were enough to keep us going for the rest of the day. This is a great tour with a special guide! – Lucy, Seattle, Washington
