Heart of the Village Food & Culture Tour

activity photo

Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

Great intro to Soho gastronomy and history

Having enjoyed food tours of neighbourhoods in other cities, my wife and I were so delighted with our introduction to Soho that we'll probably stay closer to this area on our next visit to NYC. Many thanks to Susan and Todd and the restaurateurs for a most enjoyable afternoon. The mortadella sandwich at Cafe Dante was to die for!

I was very impressed by the professionalism and wealth of knowledge the tour guide had to offer the group. She was awesome and I would highly recommend going on another food tour. The food was great and it was very nice of the owners to take the time out of their busy schedules to allow us to taste their food.

Best tour, so far!!

Did this tour on 08/31/12. Our guide was Raheem. He was a blast. I know this is a food tour, but it was so much more. As this is our 2nd tour with Foods of New York, the history of the neighborhood is as interesting as the food! Raheem had great knowledge of the neighborhood and history. He made the tour so much fun. The other guides, 3 different ones, were equally as knowledgeable and enthusiastic on their tours. This company has it together. Do NOT hesitate to take one or more of the tours. As a matter of fact this is one reason we came back to NY to visit. The food was great, as was the whole group that toured in our group!!! Raheem, EXCELLENT job. Keep up the good work. F. Ford

We thoroughly enjoyed our food tour. The food was excellent and we had more than enough to fill us up. We also had a terrific tour guide who really knew his stuff about both the food and history of the Central Village and SoHo areas. He was funny, personable and very informative. Both my wife and I would go on another food tour, especially if we had another top notch tour guide.

Our Second Foods of NY Tour
Sat, Aug 18, 12   12:00 PM philkapp Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
Even though I've lived in the New York area all of my life, I never seem to run out of fun things to do in Manhattan. And a Foods of NY tour is certainly one of them. My family took the West Village tour a few years ago and it was fabulous. So when my wife and I decided to take a mini vacation in the city last week, we included another F.O.N.Y tour. It was terrific, just as before. The food tasting stops were great and very diverse. Our tour guide, Rashid, was excellent. He enthusiastically explained the colorful history of the area and of the various locations we visited. His fabulous sense of humor became especially apparent as he told numerous anecdotes about the famous (and infamous) people who've lived in Greenwich Village over the years. I would highly recommend this tour to both visitor and native New Yorker alike.

Interesting tour combining food (lots of it--ok to skip breakfast to get ready), architecture, history and local color. Well planned, and very good guide (Raheem.) Also good range of food--Italian, Cuban, Indian, desserts. Highly recommended. Have taken other food tours--this is easily the best.
