ethnic eateries, and one local restaurant, as well as an "off-the-beaten-path" glimpse of "Life in New
York City" -the history, culture, architecture, and entertainment offerings.
All tours include:
- 3-hour tour with friendly & knowledgeable guide
- All food tastings included!
- A bottle of water
- Our Foods of New York Tours neighborhood guide with recommendations for great restaurants, shops
& cultural venues with map detailing how to return to all the delicious restaurants and shops on the

What should I expect if I take a Foods of New York 3 hour Walking Tour?
Our walking and tasting tours are led by experienced Foods of New York tour guides. During our tours you
will learn about the history and culture of a neighborhood while tasting delicious food specialties from
Mom and Pop food shops, eateries, and restaurants. Most of the food tastings are served while standing
in or outside of the food establishment. There is one sit down tasting that takes place in a restaurant
on each of our tours. This sit down tasting takes around 20-25 minutes and will allow everyone to enjoy
themselves in a relaxed manner. While on the tour we go in and out of food establishments, walk down
interesting streets, and learn about the fascinating history and culture of a neighborhood.
