Spooky stories AND food?! Say no more! On October 23 Downtown Somerville New Jersey will be hosting a ghost walk with Haunted History Productions ! Add onto it with a VIP experience with Beyond The Plate Food Tours beforehand for a foodie experience to remember! Costumes strongly encouraged 🧟‍♂️

Note on the pics 1: these beautiful (and tasty) sundaes were from a food tour from a stop at Fresh Tiki Bar last year and may not currently be available currently though we strongly suggest you head over to their page to see their latest creations and hours of operation as they may fluctuate.

Pic 2: we said costumes encouraged and this group delivered! Way to make it a fun day with a trip to flavortown (sorry we had to) starting with De Martino Restaurant !

Yummy Staff Outing!
I want to thank Alessia for an amazing experience from Beyond The Plate Food Tours. Our staff loved every minute of our experience. A big shout out to toast, kitchen Tex Mex, B2 Bistro + Bar and sugar rush for a delicious experience. Everyone was so friendly and very accommodating as there were some dietary restrictions. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend our Time together as a team.

Up next we have Alessia Aron of Beyond The Plate Food Tours !

Alessia has been running her tour in Jersey City for about 8 years now, and since then has expanded into Red Bank and Somerville. What she really enjoys about the tours is she can experience others happiness and be a part of the magic they feel when they try new foods.

Fun Fact: When she was younger she was a very picky eater, and she would have laughed if you told her she would be the owner of a food touring company.

If you’re a foodie like us, you want all the good eats. But deciding where to go and what to eat (and drink!) when there are so many options? We get ya! It’s overwhelming sometimes. Check out these food trails around NJ including one in our very own backyard - Somerville - with Beyond The Plate Food Tours! We promise you won’t be disappointed 🍽🍹🤤https://www.njfoodtourtrail.com

👋🏼 Greetings from Vancouver 🇨🇦 🍁
For all our new followers, I’m Alessia, owner and operator of @beyondtheplatefoodtours .
When I’m not running tours myself (thanks to my amazing tour guides @foodiefilmsmedia and @its.melissad), I try to travel as much safely possible.
I am NOT🙅🏻‍♀️a big cold weather fan, but given the chance to visit an old friend in the lovely land of Canada, I took it. We did a cooking class with @dirty_apron focused on seafood and it was EXCELLENT! Highly recommend if you’re in the area.
Definitely eating super well here. Incredibly fresh seafood, chef-driven restaurants, locally sourced ingredients and limited but well executed menus.
.
Fav so far? The Arctic char sashimi with leche de Tigre at @nightingalerest (📸last photo).

I just picked up a bottle of @misunderstoodwhiskey to make some #fall themed #cocktails to pair with a fall themed dinner 😏
1. Pour desired amount of #gingerspiced #whiskey,
2. top with apple cider
3. squeeze some lemon.
💥 💥 💥
Fall in a cup.

If you didn’t already know, the brand @misunderstoodwhiskey started right here in #jerseycity and we love featuring it on our tours @lunajerseycity 😍
Pick up a bottle at your fav liquor store.

First time eating at @carlitos_tacos @smorgasbar location….

And it was 🔥 🔥 🔥. I think Kyle and I tried every single taco!

My favs? The sweet plantain quesataco (sweet n savory is my thing), and the brisket quesataco. But honestly I’d reorder all of them.

This barbecue taqueria is def worth checking out. PLUS, epic views of #NYC, and seriously stellar cocktails made with real juices inspired by Latin American flavors.

Thank you Fernando at @carlitos_tacos for being a really great host as well!

Go before it gets too cold outside 🌮
While this place might not be on our tour (yet?), were always looking for ways we can collaborate with other local spots!

IT'S OUR 2-YEAR #BTP ANNIVERSARY!
.
And what a time to celebrate!
.
June 24th, 2019 I took a massive leap of faith in transitioning from 5 years as Jersey Girls Food Tours to a solopreneur of Beyond the Plate Food Tours. Eight months later, Covid hit. Tours were put on hold for almost 4 months, and once we reopened in July, tour capacity was at 50%.
.
It has not been an easy journey but I'm so grateful to be here on the other side of this, still running tours, seeing your smiling faces, supporting local food and drink businesses! I really wouldn't be here without the resilient partners I work with, my team, my sponsors, and of course ... YOU, reading this right now.
.
I wasn't able to pull off the big party I would have wanted to this year to celebrate this anniversary (def next year though!), but we still made it special :) Thank you to @andcowork for allowing me a space to gather some of my current local JC restaurant partners, and close friends & fans for some eats, drinks and CAKE!
Cheers to more meeting, eating, drinking and repeating!

PS. If you're wondering how you can help us create more memorable food tour memories for years to come, here's my one ask:
Share Beyond the Plate Food Tours with at least one person today! Word of mouth is free and makes a big difference for us.

** And LASTLY... Now until Sunday, enjoy 20% OFF any public tour using code "2YEARSBTP" at checkout! **
