Calling All Gourmands: New Tour Highlights Jamaica Plain Food

A new tour with a Jamaica Plain foodie focus is making its way through the neighborhood while encompassing history, dessert, beer and delicious food. "We truly believe JP has the freshest, yummiest food in town," said Lizzie Bell, co-owner of Off The Beaten Path Food Tours and Experiences. With her husband Sam Schlussel, the duo launched the tour company, which has featured food tours in Harvard Square, Davis Square and Union Square. They launched their Jamaica Plain tour in March, and it's given on weekends. "Time and again, I found myself visiting Jamaica Plain because there is an incredible food scene here with lots of unique stories and history as well as a strong, neighborly culture that shines through," said Bell.
