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

The tout guide was very knowledgeable and personable. He explained the history of the Village and SOHO in great detail. The food sampled was delicious. I will highly recommend this tour to all tourists and locals too.

We had the BEST time with Barri, tasting, laughing, walking, learning. We would highly recommend this tour if you want to meet fun people, sample LOTS of great food, and just have FUN being a part of the neighborhood for a few hours. Come HUNGRY and plan on skipping dinner that day.

Loved the eating places we visited and learning about some of the history of the village. Certainly didn't need lunch or dinner when we finished! Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Interesting & Fun

I bought this tour as a gift for my husband who loves to try different foods. We enjoyed everything about the tour. Our guide, Susan, was informative and fun to be with. The stops we made provided us with delicious food in just the right amount, so that at the end of the tour we were comfortably full; and the variety of types of food was a plus, too. We loved walking around the interesting neighborhoods of Central Greenwich and SoHo and learning the history and other information about the area. We were lucky to have beautiful weather, so it was a perfect day!

We had a most enjoyable afternoon and have already recommended this tour (and our tour guide) to friends. Learned many new and interesting facts and ate more than is possible in one afternoon. VERY Excellent!

A 'must do' when in New York

This is the second time I've been on a food tour with Foods of New York and I can't recommend them highly enough. It's a great way to see a neighbourhood 'up close and personal'. Plus you get to sample some pretty amazing food. Once again, we had an incredibly personable and knowledgeable tour guide.
