About Foods of New York Tours
The First Food Tasting and Cultural Walking Tour Business in New York City!
Foods of New York Tours was created in 1999 to help visitors and local residents find the ultimate food and cultural experience "off the beaten path." We began our research over 20 years ago while enjoying the delicious ethnic foods and diverse musical venues that existed within Greenwich Village and SoHo.
We came into New York City from NJ and strolled through these very neighborhoods searching for interesting foods and unique experiences that were not common to us. It began with the first bite of thin crust pizza from Joe's, then a Turkish donor kebab with crispy slices of lamb stuffed into a grilled pita bread from Yatagan Kebab House, and for dessert the ultimate fresh filled cannoli from Rocco's Pastry Shop. Need I say more! After this amazing food experience we continued to walk the sidewalks of Greenwich Village to see what else we could find. Before we knew it we were entering a small subterranean music venue where we listened to an elderly man play a sitar (a classic Indian musical instrument). From that moment on we knew that New York City was our kind of place!
That experience and many others inspired us to create New York's finest food tasting and cultural walking tours that are now given in some of the most historic and beautiful areas of the City.
Foods of New York Tours offers fun and delicious walking, food tasting, and discovery tours to anyone in search of a REAL New York experience. We highlight "off the beaten path" mom and pop establishments that locals frequent and incorporate unique and delicious food tastings. Besides the great food, all attendees learn the history, culture, architecture, and entertainment offerings of a specific neighborhood. Our goal at Foods of New York Tours is for everyone to return to these neighborhoods with confidence and take advantage of the wide range of food and cultural options that they offer. You will also learn how to have a hassle free night out in New York City - something many people never thought possible!
The staff at Foods of New York Tours is proud to share our knowledge and discoveries with you. Let us take you on a three hour journey that introduces you to our favorite neighborhoods, foods, and venues, while opening up a whole new world that is waiting to be explored.Buon appetito!
