Area resort concierges take restaurant-centric historical tour; you can, too
by M.M. Cloutier
 
Yesterday, 21 concierges from area resorts embarked on an excursion to Lake Worth and Lantana historic districts to get a taste of an increasingly popular tour experience centered, in large part, on restaurants and food.
 
In between visits to two historic bed-and-breakfast inns and three art galleries, they sampled signature menu items at South Shores Tavern, The Juice Bar, Brogues Downunder, and Tortilleria de Gallo
.
The outing is a snapshot of what Taste History Culinary Tours—run by the Boynton Beach-based nonprofit Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion and sponsored by Macy’s—regularly dish up in Lake Worth/Lantana and Delray Beach/Boynton Beach.
