Miami Food Tours, the company that runs SoBe Tour des Forks through the art deco district, launched its Swooped With Forks food tour last week. Wait. Don't move on with your life just yet. Before you think, Thanks for the update, Short Order, but I live and breathe Miami. I don't need a food tour, hear us out.
Starting in South Beach but hitting Wynwood, the Design District, and Buena Vista, this tour is an off-the-beaten-path option infused with historical and cultural tidbits that will satisfy locals as much as the food tastings appeal to tourists. Everyone in Miami has covered the South Beach essentials, like the Café at Books & Books and the Frieze. This is a different way to try quality restaurants you've been hearing about for what seems like ages -- Crumb on Parchment and La Latina, to name a few -- while meeting cool people and learning new facts about the city you call home.
