Today, Savor Our City takes place in several walkable neighborhoods across South Florida. Along with learning about each area’s culinary and cultural background, guests are treated to signature samples from each stop while meeting business owners, artisans, purveyors, farmers, and chefs. Current cities include Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
This month, Righetti announced her latest summer tour, dubbed "Savor Wilton Manors." Lead by local food writer Rick Karlin, the tour takes visitors into the heart of Wilton Manors — a diverse and vibrant Broward County community — and behind the scenes into the hottest restaurants and specialty food shops.
The three-hour walking tour will include signature bites from select restaurants, and meet-and-greet opportunities with restaurateurs, chefs, and local shop owners. Between bites, the tour will stop at a number of local cultural and historical landmarks where patrons can experience narratives outlining the history of Wilton Manors — otherwise known as the Island City — from its beginnings in the 1920s through its resurgence and revitalization in the 1980s, up to its present state.
The second-ever Wilton Manors walking tour stops will include Naked Grape Wine Bar, NY Grilled Cheese Co., To the Moon Marketplace, Stonewall Museum, Dolce Salato, and JP's Chocolates.
A Savor Wilton Manors tour is scheduled to take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, August 5. Tickets cost $65 per person and must be purchased in advance. Call 954-410-3177, or visit savorourcity.com.
