Taste mouthwatering eats from undiscovered spots in the cozy corners of Nolita, where old-world charm meets a youthful, downtown vibe.

Anny our guide loves what she does and it shows.

We did the Chelsea and Greenwich tours before, and liked this one even better. Anny our guide loves what she does and it shows. She was fun, knowledgable, and shared many stories about the neighborhood and it's colorful history. We went into these little store fronts, which many times opened into these amazing spaces, I think Anny called the style Industrial-Chic, very cool indeed. Then there is the food! We started at Little Cupcake Bake Shop and had a great mini blackout cupcake. Then to Emporio where we watched them make our delicious pizza. Next Tartinery Nolita served French tartines and wine. Mexican Corn Esquites at Tacombi was fun. The Smile had Amy's bread with creamy homemade ricotta. We ended our tour with wonderful chocolate at Bond St. Chocolate. We have a whole new appreciation for this area of the city.

ANOTHER WINNER!

I don't even know where to begin! This has been my fourth Foods of NY Tours, and each time I purchase tickets I don't think the experience could ever be better than the last! Again, I have been proven wrong. The Nolita NoHo Food & Culture Tour was awesome. You cannot buy a better experience for the money when visiting NYC. A broadway show costs double the amount, is over in half the time, and does not provide a fraction of the experience! Our guide, Annie, was beyond competent. She was entertaining, personable, talented, enthusiastic, and went out of her way throughout the day to make sure everyone was involved and had a great day. The weather was rainy, but the sun was shining on our little group as we made our way around these neighborhoods. The food was terrific (as usual). But the background tidbits are what convinces me everytime that Foods of NY Tour is the only company I would every use in experiences of this type. I would never go to another company. It is money well spent for the time and food cheerfully shared. Annie ended the tour with a song and hugs. I truly felt that I had participated in something magical. No exaggeration -- really! In this age where people rush from one experience to the other -- do yourself a favor and sign up for this tour. Enjoy! I know you will!!

Super tour guide; great way to see the city

Even though we had a rainy day, it didn't deter our tour guide from providing an excellent tour of Nolita and Noho. She shared interesting stories of the area and I was actually full from all the eating at the different stops. This is a super way to get acclimated to the city and identify out of the way restaurants and shops. This was my 2nd foody tour and I would take another tour next time in NYC.

We had a great time with Annie last week (waving hi to Annie's biggest fan, her mom!). Loved the food choices, the history, the architecture, the inside scoop. Because of Annie's style we all felt like friends. Will def do another tour next time.

Great Fun and Great Value!

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our Nolita/NoHo Tour with Annie. The food was excellent. I keep thinking about those delicious Brooklyn Blackout cupcakes and plotting reasons to go back to the East Village as soon as possible to eat some more. I really enjoyed the diversity of the food offerings: Italian, French, Mexican and of course cupcakes and chocolate! The backstory on local streets and landmarks was fascinating. This was my second FoodsofNY tour, and I will definitely sign up for another one. It is great fun, and a great value. Thanks!

Must do tour, great guide, great food

Great tour, very knowledgeable and friendly guide (she is the only one that does this tour) - really gets you to know the history of the local area as well as finding all the hidden gems of restaurants/bakeries etc. There are many establishments covered that you could otherwise pass by unaware of the culinary delights within... One word of advice, do this early in your trip, so that you can then go back to all the restaurants for a full meal!

Excellent tour

This tour was brought by our daughter for her Dad,'s 60th birthday. We both thoroughly enjoyed it both the food tastings and the tour guide Annie, who made a special effort even putting a candle on the cup cake at the first tasting. Annie was an excellent guide, knowledgable and fun. We went back to a couple of the restaurants later in our stay they were so good. Would thoroughly recommend the tour made extra special by Annie.
