What to Expect
Find your way to the Women's Building in the heart of the Mission District. Meet your local guide, an insider privy to behind-the-scenes culinary information who will take you to some of the best restaurants, cafes and bars in the neighborhood.
Stroll past trendy boutiques and colorful murals. Listen to engaging commentary from your guide about the neighborhood's Latino culture and history. 

Stop at several local eateries to piece together a full meal, from appetizers to dessert. Locations may include an artisanal cheese café, a gourmet grocery store, an oyster bar and the city's most popular ice cream shop. Sip a seasonal cocktail and a dark Belgian beer along with a cheese pairing. Along the way, meet some of the establishments' owners, chefs and bartenders, who will give you a behind-the-scenes perspective.

End your progressive meal near Dolores Park, where you're free to spend the evening walking and exploring the vibrant neighborhood on your own. This experience focuses on quality not quantity. Yes, you’ll leave satisfied, but you should taste and experience food in a new way – and this is about the quality and flavor! Great things come in small packages…
