TRIAD TOURING TASTERS - A New Way to Experience Food in the Triad!

Triad Touring Tasters is heading on its next adventure on July 18! We will transport you from Melt Kitchen and Bar in Greensboro to Bia's Gourmet Hardware in Asheboro where Proprietor, Bia Rich and the Chef de Cuisine, Graham Heaton (of Table 16 fame) will host a four course tasting menu made from locally sourced ingredients! The bus takes off at 6:00pm from Melt at 1941 New Garden Rd and will return around 9:30pm. Tickets are only $52 and include a glass of wine or a craft beer at Melt, transportation, meal, and tip; additional beverages not included. Bon Appetit!


A luxury bus provided by Matt Logan, LLC transports participants to and from the host restaurant. Registration will be required through Triad Local First. Ticket sales include transportation, meal, and one complimentary glass of wine; additional beverages and tip not included.

Our intention is to bring attention to our locally-owned restaurants and to bring the Triad together by providing a care-free trip for our tasters to discover another community’s restaurant scene.  All “tasters” will be treated to a fun ride to and from the participating businesses.

Please let us know if your business would like to host a Triple T Express event by contacting Mary Lacklen at

Mary's Gourmet Diner and Four Flocks and Larder - June 24, 2017

The “Triple T” Express transported us to Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem where Proprietor, Mary Haglund, and her amazing team hosted a family-style brunch made from locally sourced ingredients! We started in Greensboro at Four Flocks and Larder for a "brunchtail", then traveled to brunch at Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem and returned to Greensboro. Tour participants enjoyed a personal experience and a delcious meal of fresh sausage, fruit, biscuits, French toast and LOADS more fabulous brunch food served up by Mary herself!


Willow's Bistro and Zeto Wine - April 25, 2017

Triad Touring Tasters launched on April 25, originated at Zeto wine and cheese shop in Greensboro, traveled to Willow's Bistro in Winston-Salem for dinner and drinks, and returned to Zeto. We worked with Chef Travis Myers who curated a dinner for 14 so that each guest could experience a three-course meal with locally sourced ingredients. Tour participants learned about the local food scene and dined from a menu created just for them.
