Full description

Your dining experience will be nothing short of exceptional as you visit 3 handpicked restaurants. But it's not just about the food; it's about the stories behind it. The guides will regale you with tales of restaurant owners, chefs, and the neighborhood's rich history.

The tasting journey is a culinary adventure you won't soon forget. Picture handmade spaghetti with olive oil, garlic, and broccoli at a beloved Italian eatery. Try the truffle cashew cream pizza by acclaimed Chef Matthew Kenney, a pioneer in artistic food experiences. Delight in a unique Sichuan dry pot, showcasing the talents of a young Chinese chef making waves in the East Village. And don't miss the slow-stewed vegetables over couscous, a North African delight.

But that's not all! You'll also enjoy off-menu surprises, like an exquisite basque chorizo hot dog and a savory selection of filled pierogi. And of course, save room for one of New York City's best NY-style cheesecakes!

We chose this food tour to celebrate two birthdays and bring together friends from both the city and out of state. Right from the start, our tour guide made us feel at ease and well-cared for. Despite a sizable group with various dietary restrictions and preferences, they managed it all with grace. The food was nothing short of delightful. I highly recommend it for local New Yorkers seeking something different or out-of-towners looking to make the most of their time in the city.

We received the East Village Food Tour as a gift, and what a fantastic gift it was! Our guide and their associate were incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. We also had enjoyable conversations with the other people on our tour. The selection of restaurants was intriguing, including a couple we wouldn't have chosen ourselves. Such a terrific experience!

This tour presented the most delectable food selections, and I didn't have to make a single decision – they took care of everything! The historical insights and fun facts at each stop added a delightful layer to the experience. Plus, the company and conversation were simply lovely. Everything was so delicious that I'd happily go again. What a pleasant experience!
