Mangia? Food tour?... Say what?

“Mangia” is Italian for “Eat! Enjoy!” Mangia DC is our way of helping locals and tourists alike enjoy DC and all it has to offer—the food, the sights, the history, and the people!

A food tour is a walking tour in which an energetic, knowledgeable guide with a passion for food shows the group (usually equally energetic and far more talented and good-looking) around the city as if they were on a historic sightseeing tour—with the added bonus of stops along the way at some of the area's most unique and delicious restaurants for tastings.
