Award-Winning Lip Smacking Foodie Tours expands group offerings to Seattle

Lip Smacking Foodie Tours, Seattle
Lip Smacking Foodie Tours, proudly presents its newest VIP group dining experience which promises unprecedented access to some of the most celebrated establishments in Seattle’s buzzy neighborhood of Capitol Hill. This experience is available for private and corporate groups of 15 to 75 participants.

As with all its tours, this experience escorts groups to up to four restaurants, with each presenting an array of distinctive dishes while patrons relax, mingle and network. Guests are treated as VIP’s as they are personally greeted by chefs and proprietors and whisked to the best seats in the house at each venue. There is never any fussing with waiting in line or making reservations.

Since its founding four years ago in the entertainment center of the world, Las Vegas, Lip Smacking Foodie Tours has amassed a host of accolades for its innovative walking tours and is now ranked among the city’s top tour companies while maintaining a 5.0-rating on TripAdvisor. Seattle represents its third curated group experience outside its home base of Las Vegas.

Capitol Hill, Seattle’s most prominent nightlife and entertainment district, is packed with hip bars, eateries, inviting coffee spots and indie stores that are a magnet for young, high-tech and culturally adventurous locals.

The evening begins at Marmite, honored as one of “America’s Best New Restaurants’’ in 2017 by Bon Appetit magazine. Named after the classic French stock pot, the restaurant is renowned for its impeccable French cuisine built on a foundation of house-made broths that are simmered low and slow for hours. Chef and Owner Bruce Naftaly, who takes pride in sourcing ingredients hyper-locally, will showcase his skills in a cooking demonstration for guests during the first stop of the tour.

Next, Capitol Cider is sure to sate any thirst. As the largest independent cider bar in the country, this premiere public house in a 100-year-old building puts the spotlight on everything apple, from hundreds of ciders to potent spirits to house-made apple butter and other dishes made with the fragrant fruit. At this stop, guests will gather around for a tasting and talk about why this fizzy, fermented drink enjoyed as far back as Roman times is experiencing a new resurgence. Guests will also enjoy their signature dishes alongside the distinctive ciders.

That’s followed by a visit to Omega Ouzeri, where Proprietor Thomas Soukakos redefines traditional Greek cuisine through an array of delightful meze or small plates that make dining more fun and convivial.

Finally, it’s off to La Spiga, a modern-day temple to the authentic Northern Italian cuisine of the Emilia-Romagna region, where Executive Chef Sabrina Tinsley lived for many years and where her husband, General Manager and Co-Owner Pietro Borghesi, was raised. The soaring space of timber beams and bold wrought iron is the perfect backdrop for guests who will enjoy an exceptional dinner that no doubt will include the restaurant’s famed hand-made pastas crafted with organic eggs and heritage grains.

The Seattle tour is designed for private groups of locals and visitors, as well as corporate team-building groups.
