How GOOD does our downtown taste?! Eat there this weekend

May 10, 2011 § 1 Comment

From The Hamilton Spectator, by Dan Kislenko: Hamilton’s core will hear the patter of more feet than usual next Saturday when the annual Tastes Of Downtown restaurant walking tour returns.

It’s a series of themed hikes to downtown restaurants, where guests get to try a specialty food sample and a libation before moving to the next destination on foot. Each group will be conducted by a celebrity guide.

Tastes Of Downtown takes place May 14 starting at 11 a.m. and winding down at 4 p.m., followed by a wrap-up party at London Tap House until 6.30 p.m. Proceeds go to Goodwill/ The Amity Group to support their mission to help people overcome employment barriers in Hamilton.

There are three tours, each featuring five restaurants. As the popularity of the event has grown in the last few years, tickets are still available only for the downtown tour, a group consisting of Acclamation Bar & Grill, Ventura’s Signature Restaurant, My-Thai Restaurant, Tailgate Charlie’s and Flavour Of Himalaya.

The two other tours are sold out. They are the international tour, which includes Ya Man! Caribbean Cuisine, Brownies Downtown Fine Food & Spirit, Barbarossa’s Café, La Cantina Ristorante Italiano, and London Tap House. The metropolitan tour stops at Wass Ethiopian Restaurant & Bar, One Duke, The Augusta House, Incognito Restaurant & Catering, and Capri Ristorante Italiano.

Tickets for Tastes Of Downtown cost $60 each, all included, and can be obtained by calling 905-526-8482 ext. 311, or by email at
