In the animated hub of the Art District surrounded by outdoor urban graffiti and a colorful collage of indoor murals, you’ll relax with a locally brewed ‘Blonde’ beer, as Top Chef Miguel Aguilar serves up his most famous dishes at his restaurant Wynwood Kitchen and Bar. Chef Aguilar refines classic Latin staples with a modern touch, in a mouth watering marriage of Nuevo Latino flavors. During the tour, you will be given the pleasure of sampling the Ropa Vieja empanada and Maduros with queso fresco. These modern takes on classic hispanic dishes perfectly epitomize the cultural diversity and blending seen in the neighborhood.
If you’re looking to experience Miami like a local, look no further than the vibrant Wynwood. Sometimes known as “El Barrio” due to its high concentration of Puerto Rican influences, Wynwood is a place where you can explore the growing art and culinary scene in our city. Graffiti-decorated walls created by local artists fill the area, creating an atmosphere of what the true Miami is like. The art on the walls are matched by the art that chefs are serving at their restaurants, and the Wynwood Food Tour succeeds are expressing how bohemian and culturally significant the area is becoming to the city.
Throughout our Wynwood Tour($69) you will have the opportunity to make your way throughout the Wynwood Walls. Conceived by Tony Goldman, a world-known community revitalizer known for his work in New York City, the Wynwood Walls are a sector of the Wynwood neighborhood making a statement with its commitment to graffiti and street art. Ever since its conception, the Wynwood area has drawn some of the world greatest artists to Miami in hopes of revitalizing the neighborhood by using the surrounding buildings and walls as a blank canvas to create an artistic movement.
Tours ($69) are held every Saturday at 12:30 PM and last between two to three hours. Expect to walk 1 mile with plenty of seated restaurant breaks and stops covering the unique art and fun local facts.
