What You'll Do
D.C.'s 14th Street is ripe with history. It was home to one of the first streetcar lines, and as Jeffrey Diaz's tour reveals, a stretch of the street was once infamous for its red-light district. On a 1.25-mile walking tour, Jeffrey or one of his guides shows how the neighborhood has since changed into a destination for foodies and history buffs alike. You'll walk to historical sites and restaurants, where traveling with a guide has its benefits: no lines, no waiting, and food samples that are ready by the time you arrive.
After a brief introduction, foodie Jeffrey Diaz or one of his guides discusses where you'll be stopping and addresses any concerns related to food allergies.
Tour 14th Street's Food and History
The tour alternates between neighborhood restaurants and historical stops. Along the way you'll learn how 14th Street has changed over the years.
Sample Food at Neighborhood Restaurants
At each food stop, you meet with the chef or general manager, ask questions, and sample food and drinks.
Jeffrey or one of his guides leaves the group with a recommendation of additional sites to visit and a goodie bag containing treats and menus from the restaurants visited during the tour.
Foodie and Tour Guide
Jeffrey Diaz wants to get you out of your comfort zone. During his restaurant tours, he and his fellow guides encourage tour-goers to try entirely new dishes and drinks. The job is a natural fit for Jeffrey, who spent more than 20 years as a chef and has worked as a tour guide in Philadelphia, Oregon, and Washington, D.C.
