THE AVITAL PHILOSOPHY

Our mission is to help people experience the world differently through storytelling and food. We think of ourselves as storytellers, showcasing each neighborhood through the people, places, and great food (and drinks). Our core values define our experiences: Build Awesome Experiences, Create Community, Breathe Curiosity, Embrace Quirky, and Seize Ownership.

A THOUGHTFULLY CURATED COLLECTION OF EXPERIENCES:
Each 4-course progressive meal starts with appetizers, then an entree and finally dessert with each course served at a different restaurant. Along the way, our expert guides will provide a snapshot of an iconic neighborhood by telling its authentic story through its people and great food (and drink, of course!) You’ll see, smell, and taste what shapes each unique neighborhood, from the food to the art, history, and culture.

#BuildAwesomeExperiences

DISCOVER NEW PLACES & REDISCOVER OLD FAVORITES:
We pride ourselves on working with the best quality restaurants in each neighborhood ranging from hidden gems to local favorites. We feel the best dining experiences are the ones in which we’re seated around tables sharing food and stories with others. Let us tell you their story and you tell us yours!
#CreateCommunity

QUALITY NOT QUANTITY:
We select our restaurant partners for their quality and stories. Yes, you’ll leave satisfied, but we want you to taste and experience food in a new way – and to us its about the quality and flavor — and quality is not cheap. And yes, we want to challenge your taste buds and push your boundaries.
#BreatheCuriosity

BEST DARN GUIDES OUT THERE:
We are energetic, fun and quirky — and are ridiculously passionate about everything edible we put in our mouths. And most importantly, we are authentic and genuine!
#EmbraceQuirky

BUILT BY LOCALS FOR LOCALS:
Our goal is that someone who lives in the East Village comes on our East Village Progressive Meal and learns something about her own neighborhood – exploring her own backyard through curious eyes. Ask lots of questions and take the experience to new levels for yourself.
#SeizeOwnership
