Our tour with Audrey herself outdid our expectations! A delightful four and a half hours of food and fun. My daughters and I were joined by a couple from Texas for our tour. We were celebrating a special birthday by doing a Busman's Holiday tour of the North End as the three of us are local. In fact, one daughter had lived for years in the North End, and Audrey welcomed her stories of that time while adding the extra history and knowledge of more recent events - and delights. We couldn't have asked for a better day. As to the particulars, our Fitbits registered over 10,000 steps for the outing, so do wear very sensible shoes! And our dinner reservation for the evening suffered a bit as the offerings of bread, chowder, cheese, pizza, pasta, cupcakes, cannoli and chocolate were enough to cover both lunch and dinner. Audrey was a wonderful guide - the pace was unhurried but deliberate. We did tell Audrey that we were celebrating a birthday, and she arranged for a molten chocolate cake and ice cream topped with a candle at the last stop, Lucca's restaurant. Perfect!
Each shop and shop person entertained our questions and delighted us with their artisanal knowledge. Special thanks go to Jen at Cocoanuts and Mary at Bricco Panetteria for hosting us in their shops. The wait staff at Lucca's were the best, and Joe at Bricco Salumeria is wonderful. The company was excellent and the experience a complete delight. Thank you, Audrey!
