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.

Our tour was packed full of neat factual info about both the foods and the neighborhoods. Our guide kept us moving quickly and eating expeditiously. He was tremendous, even in the rain shower !

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!

The leader of our group was a man - I am sorry i do not remember his name- we started at 12:00 at Morrie's (sp) and tasted/toured a variety of ethnic and local restuarants, while getting a running dialogue about the neighborhood and its history. It was great, it added to my trip and gave me insight into NYC which I would not have gotten by reading tour books. I recommended the tour to other friends who also took it.

The guide was very knowledgeable about the area we toured and the food we tasted. Especially liked that he gave us background information about some of the stores and clubs that have since closed. Liked the variety of the foods tasted and that some tastings were sit down in the restaurant. It was a very enjoyable tour and highly recommend it.

My husband and I enjoyed the Food and Culture tour recommed by our travel agent who had just returned from NYC. Our tour guide was well informed and charming, as she led us through the village with its' various historic sites and restaurants. The foods we tasted were all different and very good, while the pace was leisurely. We have been telling friends about our experience and enthusiastically recommending Food Tours of New York.

So happy we went on the tour. Gave us an opportunity to see another part of NYC and it was everything it was advertised to be. Susan was a great guide, very informed, friendly, enthusiastic...great ambassator for the village. I made the mistake of eating breakfast, the tastes were generous and delicious, wonderful selection and variety. I had never tasted Indian cuisine, a treat. The stop and Montes and the Cuba were my favorite...but it would be really hard to say, all was so tasty. Loved the history shared.
