Get in touch with the tasty culture of NYC on this New York food tour that is a pleasure for both the stomach and the mind!

This New York City tour will start off at a location where many new citizens are made official, City Hall. Here at the northern edge of the colonial city we’ll start our journey with a delicious Dutch treat, just one of many foods that has made its way over thanks to the immigrant population in NYC. On this historical tour of New York, we’ll make our way around the Lower East Side, visiting 100-year old bakeries, churches, markets, and historic sites. We’ll stroll the streets of Little Italy just as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago. Marvel at former and still operating Jewish synagogues. Wind our way through the streets of Chinatown, where you’ll feel like you’re in Shanghai. We’ll dive into Latin culture at a community garden and take in cultural sites like the African Burial Ground. Along the way on this New York food tour, we’ll sink our teeth into amazing stories and amazing food. Dumplings, pretzels, cheese, and more. We’ll taste why New York City is the center of the world and the culinary legacy left here by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to the American Dream.
