The At the Chef’s Table Culinary Tour affords guests the opportunity to sit at the tables of some of the city’s top chefs and sample their signature dishes. Tours include special access and experiences that go far beyond the normal dining encounter.

Stops include visits to: Nose Dive (Gastropub) Soby's on the Side (Deli and Catering)* The Lazy Goat (Mediterranean cuisine and tapas) Soby's New South Cuisine (fine Southern cuisine) Passarelle Bistro (French inspired cuisine) Beyond the memorable culinary experiences, you will also learn fascinating insights into Greenville’s rich history, culture and architecture as well. (*If a restaurant has a schedule conflict, a stop at The Loft at Soby's or Papi's Tacos may be substituted. )

This was a gift from a friend. The food was outstanding and different from our usual choices. It was very entertaining learning the history of downtown and seeing old pictures of earlier times. We walked to the different restaurants and enjoyed the company of delightful other couples who were from all over the US. This tour allowed us to find... More

John was incredibly knowledgeable about Greenville and the amazing history. Our tour was an hour (felt like 5 minutes it was so interesting) and all of us were just amazed at not just the big, interesting facts, but the little details that make a history tour so fascinating. John also had pictures of the past that made it that much... More

Fun time for our group. John was very knowledgeable, and was very accommodating. We learned a lot, and discovered some great, small barbecue restaurants. We ate lots of great barbecue!!

The tour guide was most knowledgeable and quite enjoyable. I've done the tour twice and I will do it again. There is always some new area to find out about and the guide makes it most enjoyable and memorable. Not sure of my exact date because it was in late 2016.
