Nolita / NoHo
Food and Culture Walking Tour
Weave your way through the cozy corners of Nolita (the area North of Little Italy) where old-world charm meets a youthful, downtown vibe. Taste mouthwatering eats from undiscovered spots that specialize in traditional recipes and century-old techniques.
Walk the same streets as John Gotti and Martin Scorsese while visiting sites made famous by The Godfather. Learn about the colorful history of The Bowery (the original theatre district) and explore its dark and seedy past. Formerly known for flophouses, Skid Row bums and the legendary CBGB's music venue, this area has transformed into a mecca for posh hotels and delectable dining.
Get a glimpse of the cast-iron facades and cobblestone streets of NoHo (in the East Village) while continuing to taste from restaurants not found in your typical NYC guidebook. Examine the origins of NYC's watertowers, fire escapes and hallow sidewalks.
Taste Roman style pizza, Brooklyn blackout cake, authentic Mexican tacos and more. Between the bespoke boutique stores, cute cafes and remarkable restaurants, you'll want to move in... and never move out.

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Our Food Tours have been designed to highlight the best and most distinctive foods from each establishment.
There isn't always a "next best" option that meets the special dietary needs of each of our guests. Since we have your health (and palate!) in mind, we truly appreciate your understanding on this issue.
Delicious food specialties are served on the tour from:
- Little Cupcake Bakeshop - A family run all american bakery

- Tacombi@Fonda Nolita - A taco truck serving real Mexican tacos from inside a restaurant

Enough food tastings are served that for most people lunch afterwards is not needed. Food tastings are subject to change without notice. At this time we CAN provide substitutions for Vegetarians but we CANNOT make substitutions for any other food allergies (such as gluten free) on the Nolita/NoHo Food Tour. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
