About this St. Augustine, Florida tour
By now, you know that St. Augustine has been around longer than any other American city. And it still draws millions of people. Is it the climate? The historic landmarks? The waterfront setting?
Yes, yes, and yes. But don't forget the food. St. Augustine is filled with one-of-a-kind cafes and restaurants showcasing the trendy and the traditional in seafood, steak, and just about every regional cuisine you can think of. This tour celebrates the city's emergence as a culinary capital in grand and eclectic fashion, showing how centuries of international influence gave the local dining scene its distinctive and unique flavor. It's a foodie's dream come true.
You'll spend two and half delicious hours visiting legendary landmarks and places still making a name for themselves – popping into one restaurant for an appetizer, stopping off at another for an entree, a glass of wine here, a salad there, some tapas next door, some out-of-this-world hummus across the street, topped off by some chocolate one block over. It's a mouthwatering and eminently satisfying exercise in one-upmanship, and you're the beneficiary. But the truth is you don't have to be a gourmet to love this tour. All you have to be is hungry.
Food + -ie
It's a young word. And so American. It works better than gastronome, gourmand, bon vivant, or epicure. Foodie is simple and efficient, without any other language's hoity-toity baggage. Paul Levy and Ann Barr get credit for its first use in their 1984 book The Official Foodie Handbook. But Levy credits Gael Greene, who used it in a 1980 article in New York Magazine.
