In a city filled with hundreds of places to grab a bite to eat, finding the right restaurant can be a struggle. But with Savor Our City, this guided tour company brings culinary adventurers to the best food and drink eateries that Boca Raton has to offer.
Founder and C.F.O, or Chief Foodie Officer, Denise Righetti, came up with the concept after successfully orchestrating several foodie events. Locals and tourists all turned to Righetti for advice on where to go and what to do in Downtown Boca Raton.
Something for everyone is included on every Savor Our City culinary tour. Adventurers are guided to a taste of everything from coffee shops, wine bars, bistros and fine dining.
“I love bringing like-minded people together and introducing them to new places, new foods,” said Righetti. “Hopefully, they leave feeling as if they’ve learned a little about the city and made some new friends.”
According to Righetti, people are seeking food tours when planning trips and vacations. “[People are] making a point to come on one at the beginning of their trip so [that] they can get the lay of the land and discover early-on which places they will return to during their stay,” said Righetti.
Culinary tourism is one of the fastest growing trends right now, but Savor Our City seek to cater locals as well.
“We do a lot of private group tours,” said Righetti. “From people looking to do something different to celebrate their birthday with a group of their friends, to country club communities booking us for lunch and dinner tours, to corporations using us for team building and client appreciation events.”
In addition to the culinary tours, Savor Our City has teamed up with eBikes of Florida to provide state of the art electric bike tours. The 2.5 hour guided tour stops at a local beach cafe for breakfast or a picnic on the beach during the lunch tours. That is not all for this local business.
“We are growing,” said Righetti. “We are expanding to Ft. Lauderdale and Palm Beach and are currently looking for interns who want to be a part of our team.”
On top of the guided tours offered, Savor Our City is also a successful food and lifestyle blog. The media outlet covers restaurant openings, food and wine festivals, charity galas and other food and wine related events.
