Tasting New York City: Guided Food Tours and Manhattan’s Top Sight-Seeing Attractions
A 3-5 hour bus and walking tour that combines our New York City Highlights tour with an edible ethnic adventure through NY’s most interesting neighborhoods. Tour length varies by what you want to see and how much you want to eat!
Stops for noshing (Yiddish for “snacking”) can include the Lower East Side’s Kossar’s Bialys for a bialy (cousin to the English Muffin) and The Pickle Guys’ dozens of varieties of pickles, sweet peppers, garlic cloves and okra. Chinatown includes fried pork & chive dumplings with sriracha (hot pepper sauce) and sweet Chinese beef jerky. In Little Italy we grab a slice of authentic NY pizza; invented here in 1905! Kalustyan’s in Curry Hill is a cornucopia of South Asian spices, herbs, coffee and teas. Chelsea Market is a collection of upscale shops and boutique bazaars, while the Upper West Side’s Zabars can’t be beat for smoked fish and Fairway‘s cheese selection is second to none. We can also head to Arthur Avenue, The Bronx’s authentic Little Italy for their bakeries (focaccia & black olive loaf), salumeria (prosciutto & cured meats) and gelateria (rich Italian ice cream).
Tour groups can have their food pre-purchased, or can spend their own cash at each stop. Prices variable on length of
