Fun Stories About RiNo and its Street Art

RiNo, short for River North, was named one of the Top 10 Neighborhoods to Visit in the U.S. by Lonely Planet in 2017. Located just one mile from the heart of downtown Denver, this up-and-coming neighborhood is known for its world-class dining, award-winning craft breweries and colorful street art.

On this three-hour walking food tour, taste some of the best dishes the RiNo Arts District has to offer while exploring a cool, industrial neighborhood.

You’ll meet your experienced local guide at Osaka Ramen, a local izakaya run by a James Beard nominee. Over the next three hours, you’ll visit five award-winning local restaurants to taste delicious dishes with the option to add alcoholic drink pairings.

You’ll taste Mexican street tacos with a fusion twist, Japanese fried chicken from a beloved local chef, specialty pizza from a spot named one of the Top 25 Restaurants in Denver, house-made ricotta gnocchi and mochi donuts.* Upgrade your ticket and you’ll enjoy three alcoholic drinks paired with your tour tastings.

In between tour stops, your local foodie guide will share interesting stories about Denver’s growing culinary scene as well as the colorful murals that cover the streets and alleys of the RiNo Arts District.

*Tastings are subject to change. We cannot accommodate gluten-free, dairy-free or vegan diets on this tour.
