Starting a food tour in Lewiston, New York had to start somewhere! For Chris and Alicia, the idea all began on a trip to Denver, Colorado. The newly married couple was planning the trip out west during the Spring of 2012 when Chris came across a local Denver restaurant tour. The idea of a city tour that not only taught you a little about the area but experience the local cuisine sounded even better!
After taking the tour and enjoying the amazing experience, Chris and Alicia decided right then that back home in Western New York would be a great place to start a food tour. Alicia being born and raised in Lewiston knew the hidden gems of restaurants in the village and wanted to share it with others. They began building their new business in July 2013 and will launch their first tours in June 2014!
Chris and Alicia have built a food tour that they are extremely proud of and eager to share with foodies of both Western New Yorkers and tourists of the Niagara region.
Lewiston is hometown for Alicia who was born and raised there. Alicia’s passion for food, desire to learn and and dream of owning her own business lead her to embark on this journey of starting her own food tour in her beloved home town. The unconditional love and support of her family gave her the confidence to make her dream a reality. Come discover what Alicia has known her whole life, that Lewiston has so much to experience!
Chris was born and raised in Western New York. He lives in Kenmore, New York with his lovely bride Alicia (co-founder of The Roaming Table). When he is not giving tours, Chris is a full time elementary teacher in Buffalo, New York. One of Chris’ life goals is to own his own business in the service industry. He is the consummate foodie who credits his mother as an influence to appreciate “good food” at a very young age. Lewiston Culinary Tours allows people of all ages to share in his passions….great food and great people!
