My family and I loved the Madison Avenue Food Tour in Covington. It was very informative about Covington and delicious food!!! Laura was a fantastic tour guide. We highly recommend this tour. We look forward to doing another Riverside food tour.
On our Madison Avenue food tour, we visit local family owned eateries where we taste delicious food featuring global cuisine and "down home" Kentucky favorites! We enjoy a variety of foods such as sweet corn fritters with buttermilk remoulade sauce at Hotel Covington. Right around the corner is McK's Chicks, a new eatery with the best barbecue brisket sliders you've ever tasted. Next, we sample an epic taco in a new tequila bar. After a stroll down historic Madison Avenue, we arrive at Amerasia, for an authentic Chinese dish. We move on to Braxton Brewing Company for a local craft beer sample in a refurbished Sears and Roebuck store. We end our tour at Left Bank, a French inspired coffee house featuring locally roasted coffee and a yummy pastry from Butler's Pantry. The food tastings are ample for a satisfying lunch. Guests who like to order additional drinks, may simply run their own tab.
