ABOUT US:

Since 1999 Foods of New York Tours has been giving food tasting and cultural walking tours through New York City’s most delicious and historic neighborhoods. We provide a “non-touristy” experience so guests feel like native New Yorkers. Each tour includes food tastings from specialty food shops, ethnic eateries, and local restaurants, as well as an off-the-beaten-path glimpse of Life in New York City, including history, culture, architecture, and entertainment offerings.

Our small office (on Barrow Street in Greenwich Village) is responsible for the behind the scenes work that makes the food tours run smoothly and successfully.

The office is run by two full-time staff and one part-time staff. We’re looking for an assistant to join the team. There is room for growth.
