This is a private foodie experience of our country's and our city's gastronomy with lunch or dinner options available for you to choose from.
We'll walk through the gastronomic district of San Jose Costa Rica and visit the places that are rescuing our gastronomic heritage or pushing the envelope in the scene. We'll visit five places total: three restaurants, for a three course meal (a course at each stop), a cocktail bar and a speciality coffee shop.

Each place has something that makes them unique, either their own farm with organic ingredients, or fair trade practices that ensure you the quality of the products used, or a whole culinary research project going on.

And, while we do all this, we'll be sharing with the history of the neighborhood and it's architecture as we walk from one place to the next one.

What's Included

An alcoholic cocktail prepared by a mixologist will be included prior or after the meal (depending if you book for lunch or for dinner). Also a cup of wine or beer will be served with your main dish.
