Newburyport food tour leads to good eats

It’s easy to pick out Patrick “P.J.” Halloran on the streets of this city — he’s the one wielding the giant silver fork. Halloran, a firefighter in Somerville who grew up in Gloucester, launched Taste Newburyport food tours in May and has been leading foodies around the city for a sampling of choice eats garnished with bits of history.

His inspiration: “We took a bunch of food tours in Italy and realized that this is a great way to see a city.” Halloran also offers food tours of Gloucester (plus a new brewery tour) and Rockport, but it’s Newburyport that truly surprises, given his ability to sleuth out small specialty shops that offer big taste, including a “Cupcake Wars” contestant and an “O” Magazine pick.
