U Street Food & History Tour

Join us as we explore the tastes and historic treasures of DC’s U Street corridor. Once known as “Black Broadway,” this neighborhood remains a trove of the capital’s African American history. From the Civil War through the Jazz Age to the race riots of the ‘60s and beyond, we’ll not only discover that rich history but also taste how it has influenced the diversity of U St’s many eateries. Come hungry, as we’ll be using our fingers to get a true feel for the deep flavors of Ethiopia, dropping in on a local favorite U Street Food Tourfor some sumptuous soul food (hint: Guy Fieri oohhs and aahhs about this place) and ending up with a good old bowl of chili from one of DC’s most famous stops.

We are not offering this Food tour at the moment as a public option. We are happy to arrange a private tour or you can take our Self Guided U Street Food Tour.

We do have a U Street History Tour with a special food stop at local eatery! Check that out here.
