Lingering too long at a single restaurant results in legs falling asleep, food going cold, and the maitre d' building a nest from patrons' belongings. Dodge stagnant dining with today’s Groupon: for $26, you get the SoBe Tour des Forks from Miami Food Tours in Miami Beach (a $53 value). Tours are held Monday through Saturday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.—meet-up locations will be disclosed upon purchase.
Miami Food Tours' SoBe Tour des Forks takes sightseeing foodies of all ages on a three-hour, guided walking-and-tasting tour of the dining gems of South Beach. Certified guides lead tasters on a 1.5-mile walk along Lincoln Road and Espanola Way, where the tour stops at a variety of delicious destinations to play red rover with the cooking staffs and to sample savory, local flavors including Miami nouvelle, Cuban cuisine, and gourmet burgers. A taste of authentic French cuisine induces Francophilic-dining fantasies, while spoonfuls of homemade, kosher ice cream conform to both Jewish Halachic laws and constitutional mandates of delectability. Along the way, tourists learn about Miami's culture and cuisine, the Art Deco district's architecture, and how the area's streets were paved by an ambitious three-year-old.
