After the 1906 earthquake, the enclave of debauchery and vice that was the Barbary Coast was resurrected as North Beach - the Little Italy of San Francisco. Italian immigrants flocked to San Francisco to help rebuild the city and work in the nearby docks and canneries. Some of the newly arrived brought with them family recipes and an entrepreneurial spirit.
While Little Italy has gotten a little touristy, the original recipes and heritage still remain today. Come on a foodie tour of espresso, spaghetti, cocktails and the stories behind them.
About Your Guide
Hi, I'm Corey. I like sporting bow ties, but I'd rather be wearing my backpack, getting lost in the winding alleys of a place I've never been, while eating a donut. San Francisco is my home, although I've lived in Paris, Austin, and Santa Barbara. I've traveled all around the world, my most recent trip was to Sri Lanka and the Maldives with my wife, Myriah.
I like parentheses (most excellent for interjecting trivial thoughts), I played soccer in college (but, now I just yell at the TV while watching it), and will eat any street food I encounter (yes, that includes rotten things, bugs, the occasional snake heart, and of course . . . durian).
