Flavors of New York Tour - City Food Tours Tickets

  • About Flavors of New York Tour – City Food Tours

    The East Village is a neighborhood rich with cultural and culinary adventures, and City Food Tours’ Flavors of New York tour is a perfect way to get to know an area that doesn’t make its way onto most New York City itineraries. Chock full of amazing restaurants and shops, the artistic, alternative neighborhood is populated primarily by students and a creative class who keep the streets lively and fun at all hours of the day.

    The Flavors of New York tour pays homage to the epic history of New York’s international populations who settled downtown around the turn of the last century; many of the foods that we think of as being quintessentially New York were born from these groups’ old-world traditions. A Jewish drink that acts as dessert? Check. A hot dog served exactly how you like it? Yup. A classic slice of pizza, with the perfect ratio of cheese-to-sauce crust? You got it.

    The tour starts with a brief history of the area, from immigrant beginnings to its punk rock present. (Guides are sure to ask about any food allergies or strong dislikes, so that no one is served anything that will trigger bad reactions, allergic and otherwise.) The tour might take you by a decades-old newsstand with a soda fountain, or a Polish butcher shop that continues to serve the East Village community in the same way it has for years. A visit to a 24-hour diner popular with locals hints at the kind of scene you’ll find if you come back at 3am for a hamburger. Newer and funkier businesses are highlighted too, showcasing the East Village’s unique straddling of old world and new. With its combination of sweet and savory, traditional and cutting-edge, the Flavors of New York tour gives participants a little taste of everything.

    Did you know?
    The licensed tour guides who work with City Food Tours are experts in both New York City itself and obscure culinary matters; on this tour you might discuss such subjects as trademarked recipes, sidewalk-level guerilla art, the etymology of an egg cream or the real secret as to why New York City pizza is so perfect.

    Tour length
    Approximately two hours and 30 minutes
  • For those interested in the iconic foods that define New York—heck, America—this tour is an excellent opportunity to sample the best of the best, and you get to check out one of Manhattan’s coolest neighborhoods along the way. Though a few of the stops on the tour offer the opportunity to sit down, the tour covers a bit of ground and demands a certain amount of hustle (at least whatever calories are consumed are evened out by the mileage covered!).
