Multicultural Food Tour
Meet your tour guide in downtown Chicago and enjoy a mini-tour of the city. Along the way, there will be photo opportunities as you explore downtown and the lakefront. Bring a camera, because these are some of the best views of the city! Our first stop is a long-time Chicago favorite and staple - The Berghoff. From the moment you walk in, you know you are stepping into Chicago's rich cultural past. While at this German landmark, you will partake in a full size brat & knockwurst appetizer, which includes two different sausages, German potato salad and sauerkraut. Wash it down with an authentic root beer. Next, we continue our day with a stop at Tuscany on Taylor, located in the quaint neighborhood of Little Italy. Immerse yourself in the exquisite aromas and multi-layered flavors of Italy as you enjoy a savory sampling of hand-made, authentic bruschetta and short rib-stuffed ravioli. Coffee, tea or a soft drink is included - but we don't mind if you buy yourself a glass of wine! We will continue our mini-tour of the city as we head north to one of Chicago's many Polish enclaves and to one of the best buffets in all of Chicago. While here, you will be given exclusive access to Red Apple's dessert bar, featuring many of your favorite Polish sweets and treats!
