In Events & Adventures

   We at Gracie’s are thrilled to announce the inception of what we hope will become a longstanding tradition, our Culinary Bliss Tours!

   It all began last October, when we embarked on a culinary cruise of the Mediterranean with both our cherished guests and head chefs Matt Varga and Melissa Denmark. The trip was such a success that we immediately began brainstorming ways to replicate the experienceafter all, creating lifelong memories over exceptional food is the premise upon which all Gracie’s endeavors are based.

   Now, seven months later, we’re excited to invite you to join us on our next big adventure: June’s NYC Culinary Bliss Tour with Executive Chef Matt Varga!

   On this excursion, which will depart from Providence by deluxe motor coach, guests will experience the Big Apple like never before. From June 2627, Chef Varga will lead our intimate group of gastronomers on a culinary tour of the “City That Never Sleeps” (although we certainly will!). Together, we’ll visit fan favorites such as Eataly NYC, along with Manhattan highlights including Le District, Murray’s Cheese, Hot Bread Kitchen, and more.

   Space is limited to 10 guests, so we encourage you to book now! Interested parties may reserve a spot on this culinary adventure by contacting Lori Seeley of Innovative Travel Concepts at 401-864-7630 or
