Sidewalk Food Tours of Chicago
Sidewalk Food Tours of Chicago introduces tourists and locals to the Windy City’s thriving food scene via deep-dish pizzas, hot dogs, and ethnic cuisine. Two neighborhoods in particular brim with famous restaurants and hidden eateries: Wicker Park and River North.
On their streets, Sidewalk Food Tours of Chicago’s local guides lead groups on walking explorations, pausing frequently to taste everything from cupcakes to Top Chef Masters winner Rick Bayless’s Mexican cuisine. Food stands at the crossroads of each neighborhood’s culture, and the guides use it as a jumping off point to discuss local history and architecture. They might spin tales of how Wicker Park was once a hotbed of European immigration or how River North accumulated a wealth that would make John D. Rockefeller’s piggy bank tremble with envy.
