Tour Syracuse While You Sample Delectable Food

Sampling Syracuse Food Tours is the perfect way to spend three hours on a Saturday evening. You’ll walk through the downtown area to six award-winning Syracuse favorites as you learn about local landmarks.

Your tour starts at Kitty Hoynes Irish Pub & Restaurant where you’ll sample traditional Irish food. Make sure to come hungry because you’ll be sampling plenty of savory fare like ribs and pork at the renowned Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. Get your carb fix at Pastabilities with the kitchen’s house-made sauces and pasta like the Spicy Hot Tomato Oil.

Save room for dessert. The Sweet Praxis is more than a bakery – it’s a kitchen lab. Enjoy a treat from Cathy’s Cookie Kitchen before topping off your meal with a specialty coffee from Café Kubal.

Plan Your Trip to Downtown Syracuse

Make sure to book your Syracuse tours in advance – they book up quickly. Keep in mind that you’ll spend the majority of these three hours on your feet: you’ll only sit for about 45 minutes throughout the tour.

If you’re planning a trip to Syracuse, consider staying with us at Marriott Syracuse Downtown. Our hotel is a piece of architectural history in itself and the laid-back tours are just a few steps outside our door.
