“People just love it. Whether they come from Fort Wayne, have grown up here, or they’re a transplant or from one of the surrounding communities, the response is always ‘I had no idea’ whether it’s about the history or the art, and then many are visiting these restaurants for the first time,” said Boutho. “It’s showing people who might not frequent downtown that our downtown is a safe and vibrant place to be.”

Bouthot is also working on two new concepts including Sunday brunch tours that would include 4 new restaurant stops, and tours focused on the historic Landing.
