Knife & Fort Culinary Tour

You will start the tour at Terroir Tea Salon where you will be treated to a unique tea tasting. Owners Charity and Jason are tea experts and their new tea lounge is sure to bring out the Zen in anyone. You next stop is at Choux Choux Charcuterie for a mind-blowing platter. This decade old European delicatessen specializes in homemade sausage, pates and artisanal meats and cheeses. You then head to La Taquisa for some traditional Mexican tacos made from an old family recipe. Next, you head next door to the newest kid on the block, Yalla, for some idle Eastern street food. You finish the tour at Crust Bakery for a sweet treat; this modern bakery uses local ingredients with a French twist.
