Discover Washington DC's diverse culinary roots and history while we stroll and chat about the heydays of “Black Broadway” and who gave it the moniker and the role it played in during the Jazz Era.

If you listen carefully, echoes of music still linger from historic theaters that still stand today. Sample quintessential DC flavors and continue down the block while we reveal stories behind tucked-away murals, sculptures, and the artists who created them. Learn about the riots that shaped the city and changed its landscape for years to come. What’s a half-smoke? Don’t worry. We’ll explain it all along the way. After all, this is an eating tour! We’ll stop at a variety of neighborhood eateries; some famous, others hidden gems only locals know about.
