What to expect from the Madison Avenue Food Tour
A UNIQUE CULINARY ADVENTURE
At it's peak, Madison Avenue was a cultural epicenter, with premier shopping, banking, theaters and celebrations. Current revitalization efforts are restoring this historic gem to it's former glory, providing many ethnic restaurants a new home. On our 3-hour guided food tour, we visit authentic family owned eateries where we taste delicious food featuring global cuisine and "down home" Kentucky favorites! We enjoy a variety of food such as homemade country biscuits and apple butter from a recipe in Rabbit Hash Kentucky. Next is a traditional Chinese dish, local craft beer, an authentic Mexican taco, locally roasted coffee and finally a yummy homemade dessert! The food tastings are enough for a satisfying lunch and are all included in the ticket price.
