There's a lot more to Hyde Park than the prominent cultural and academic institutions here, and A Taste of Hyde Park is all about sharing those things. On walking tours that cover both iconic sites and little-known gems, they share a glimpse into the neighborhood's cuisine, culture, and history with insider tips along the way. Stops may include restaurants, caf?s, and sweet shops, where groups are greeted with small samples while learning more about the area. Additionally, A Taste of Hyde Park offers seasonal outings. Spooky, Halloween-themed tours, for one, recount some of the neighborhood's paranormal legends, including tales about lawyer Clarence Darrow's ghost at the Museum of Science and Industry and why it's always doing the jitterbug.

As servers fill tables, the sunshine, table umbrellas, and discussions about whether or not to put up the table umbrellas fill the rooftop patio during summer months. The restaurant hosts live music, which tickles tympanic membranes every Wednesday, and disc-jockey playlists encourage merriment each Friday.
