👋🏼 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).
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays foodie fam! Thank you for all your likes, shares, and support 🥰
This holiday season we tripled our gift card sale goal thanks to you! Can’t wait to host you in 2022 ♥️♥️

HAPPY FRIYAY! How are you celebrating the weekend?
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.

We love De Martino Restaurant!
Was a pleasure to host you!
Grateful for happy guests!
Book a tour and see what you’ve been missing out on. We promise you won’t regret it.
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! **
