Central Greenwich 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.

I want to take all of the food tours

Susan was engaging, relaxed, interesting. Orchestration of tour, with all the restaurants or shops having our tastings ready when we arrived, is remarkable. We enjoyed smoked mozarella we purchased from one of the shops, just last night for dinner, with homemade foccacia--an idea we got from our first stop on the tour. Fascinating to get history of the neighborhoods, celebrity residents, and music history at Cafe' Wha. Perfect balance of walking and sitting, being outside in the 95 degree heat of that day, then inside in air-conditioned restaurants. Have already recommended your tours to freinds coming to NYC. Plan to arrange Chinatown tour for next visit, and inquired if there might be Harlem tour.

Great food along with a very knowledgable guide made for a fun way to introduce friends from out of town to the lesser known aspects of the big apple. We took "The Original" Greenwich Village tour which seemed to have a wider variety of both cultural and cullinary options. This tour has a heavy lean on Italian food - would have loved to include Kabab house and other ethnicities to add variety. We look forward to a lower east side tour making an appearance someday.

Our guide was very knowledgeable of the foods, culture, and neighborhood. I would go on another food tour if he was the guide. Lots of great samples of the food from Central Village.

I have been to New York City over the past eight summers, and this tour definitely ranks among my favorite things that I have done there. Our group tasted excellent and unique foods, and learned a lot of interesting facts about the Central Village and SoHo neighborhods. This couldn't have been accomplished without our amazing tour guide, Diana!

Visiting the Village... take the tour first thing

The Greenwich Village food tour was one of the highlights of our trip to New York. This is a great way to get to know the Village before you head out on your own. On this tour you'll sample excellent food from among the authentic, local places in Greenwich Village and Soho, and learn something about the diverse and colorful history of the Village and NYC. The tour guide, and the restaurateurs and proprietors of the places we visited, are engaging and friendly; and the food items we sampled were always excellent, interesting and delicious. Every stop on this tour was a "highlight"; but let me call out a couple: Joe's Dairy, with delicious, creamy smoked mozzarella and intense, savory sun-dried tomatoes. Once Upon a Tart, right across the street, with tasty and expressively French-inspired fruit desserts on a delicate tart crust. Montes Italian restaurant, where we sampled pasta with a bolognese sauce that will reset your expectations forever of what southern-Italian-style red meat sauce can be. Thanks, I hope to take this tour again. On the next trip to NY we plan to go back to many of these places, and really explore the menu for lunch and dinner.

Dang we had fun! Susan our guide was cool and knowledgable. The food selections were diverse and all were very good. The pace of the tour was nice, we never got hot, thirsty, or hungry :-) Great way to learn about New York history too. Didn't know the alcoholic drinks were going to be extra, but oh well, we drank them. We had a great "couples event" and would totally reccomend it to our friends (we were tweeting our experiences and our friends were loving the updates and photos) and about doing the other tours. When we come back to New York, we will for sure do another one.
