What Others Are Saying

This tour was amazing and by far our favorite DLA Piper event of the summer. It was such a gorgeous summer day to walk around the Mission and all of the stops were perfect. Even though I grew up in the Bay Area, this was one side of the Mission I never experienced, and had a lot of fun doing it! – Nancy Lam, DLA Piper Law Firm, San Francisco, CA
Absolutely AMAZING! Best tour I've ever been on in the US and globally. – Jen, Stillwell, KS
This was honestly one of the most fun and educational thing I've ever done in SF. – Jamie, San Francisco, CA

Why a Single Location Culinary Experience?

Reinvent Happy Hour with interactive culinary games and hands on culinary experiences, where each guest has the opportunity to make and shake their own cocktail

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE

Our walking food tours are built by locals for locals. Our goal is that someone who lives in the Mission comes on our Mission Food Tour and learns something about her own neighborhood – exploring her own backyard through curious eyes.

You’ll get a behind the scenes look at the San Francisco culinary scene on our private food tours, while hearing the stories of chefs, restaurant owners, and culinary experts. Each 3 hour private corporate team building food tour visits 4 restaurants – with each course served at a different restaurant and thoughtfully curated by our team.

FAQ

  • Can you accommodate large groups?

    Yes.  We host teams of all sizes.  Talk with your Culinary Curator for details, group rates, and options for your size.
  • Do we pick the restaurants?

    Well, you could, but then why come to us?  We have the “tough” job of eating at all of San Francisco’s awesome restaurants, finding those quirky characters, and building a culinary experience with story and purpose (that’s also delicious!)  Trust us, that’s why you came here.  Tell your curator about your team’s passions and preferences, and leave the rest to us.

  • What if I don't know my exact group size? Can I still book?

    That’s okay!  You can still book to reserve your date/time with a estimate and adjust later.  Ask your curator for details on adjustments based on group size.

  • Why not choose a cheaper food tour?

    We’re not actually a typically food tour.  We’ve taken the chef’s prix fixe tasting menu to the next level – with each course served at a different restaurant and guests seated at tables inside!   So, also ask yourself – why not choose a more expensive chef’s tasting menu at a single restaurant?  We’re the best of both worlds, and our prices reflect that.  If you’re looking for small bites on the sidewalk, then definitely go with a cheaper food tour.  If you’re looking for something more, give us a try.

  • Is Alcohol included?

    YES! or No!  It’s your choice – we offer packages with and without alcoholic beverage pairings.  We can do non-alcoholic beverages also by request.

  • What if my team has dietary restrictions?

    No problem! We can accommodate for all dietary restrictions, just let us know before your event and you’re good to go.

  • Is this a full meal? How big are portion sizes?

    Yes. We have packages great for lunch and others perfect for dinner. Your curator can help you choose which package is most appropriate for your group.
    Our portions are full courses. While other food tour companies might serve you a quarter of a donut and consider that a “tasting”, we’ll serve you the full donut as one tasting.
  • Where do we meet?

    It depends!  After you book, your curator gets hard to work planning an awesome experience threading together partner restaurants, neighborhood landmarks, and quirky stories to fit your group, event date/time, and size.  Once the curation is complete, they’ll let you know the meeting location that suits your itinerary.

    (Mission events meet near 18th and Valencia area, North Beach events meet near Washington Sq Park / Broadway-Columbus areas, Tendernob Events meet a few blocks from Union Square)
  • Do we walk? Can you pick us up?

    Yes and yes! Once you arrive in the neighborhood, you’ll walk about 1 to 1.5 miles total over the 3 hour event.  If you need a lift there, we offer private transportation from your location to/from the event (ask your curator for pricing.)  If you don’t want to walk at all, check out our multi-neighborhood packages. (Submit an inquiry for more info.)
  • Do I get an itinerary in advance?

    We prefer to surprise and delight our guests, so don’t usually release the itinerary in advance. Well, ok, if you really want to spoil the fun, we’ll tell you, but we don’t recommend it 😉
  • Do you have availability? How much does it cost?

    Submit an inquiry to receive instant access to our event proposal with pricing, and a fast response from your curator about availability.  The online calendar is for public tickets only.  Private events have many more options and are available at any date and any time of your choosing.
