If you consider yourself a foodie, then this unique tour of some of Rehoboth Beach’s finest restaurants is definitely for you.
The brainchild of three creative individuals who absolutely love their local restaurants and their community of Rehoboth Beach, the “Eating Tour’” concept is this. You walk at a leisurely pace through Rehoboth’s quaint streets, stopping as a group to sample small plates and sips of craft beverages at a variety of restaurants that Rehoboth Beach has to offer.
By now, you’ve heard of the stellar reputation of the beach’s culinary world. It’s often referred to as the “culinary coast, a mecca for diverse dining for residents and visitors alike.
Many of the Rehoboth restaurants and their chefs built their reputations in Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia. But the love of the beaches of southern Delaware, and the loyal clientele provides excellent opportunities to expand their restaurants’ following.
Take a Sunday afternoon stroll while enjoying taste-testing of chefs’ creations. Taking place from April through November, the tours also include plenty of stories about RB’s history, some fun facts, and plenty of camaraderie. Groups are approximately 10-15 people strong.
Creators include Deb Griffin, a local real estate agent and blogger, Paul Cullen, former bassist for Bad Company and a fine chef, and “Rehoboth Foodie,” a successful web blogger and radio personality who is an obsessed connoisseur of the local restaurant scene (he prefers to simply be identified as The Rehoboth Foodie.
The three of them took the concept to reality; there are similar programs in other foodie cities such as Asheville, North Carolina. But for anyone new to Rehoboth Beach (or curious about its multitudes of dining options), Eating Rehoboth was instantly successful.
In fact, the tours sell out quickly, particularly in the height of the summer season. The fee per person is $59, which includes all food and drink tastings plus gratuity. It is highly recommended to make reservations early in the season, especially if you are planning to attend with a group of your friends and neighbors.
Testimonials on the website, Eating Rehoboth praise how well the tours are organized, and how special it is to be able to sample so many restaurants in one afternoon. One contributor offered, “A terrific afternoon adventure behind the scenes of Rehoboth’s superb array of restaurants.”
Tours typically last between 2.5 and 3 hours. Many guests end up returning for dinner at their favorite establishment on their trip.
Gift certificates are also available for your other favorite foodies. Bon appetit!
