Since 1999, Foods of New York Tours has been giving food tasting and cultural walking tours through New York City's most delicious and historic neighborhoods.
We provide a non-touristy experience so you feel like a native New Yorker! Each tour includes food tastings from specialty food shops, ethnic eateries, and one local restaurant as well as an off-the-beaten-path glimpse of "Life in New York City"— the history, culture, architecture, entertainment offerings.

Our adventure began over 25 years ago, when we started exploring the diverse ethnic foods and offbeat musical venues within Greenwich Village and SoHo. We soon found the perfect slice of thin crust pizza, a traditional Turkish eatery, the best fresh-filled cannoli, and a tiny subterranean jazz club. From that point on we knew that we had to share our findings with other people that would appreciate it.
Join us on a three-hour journey that will introduce you to where the locals go while opening you up to a whole new world of food, history, and culture!
Buon appetito!

We were a small group of four which made the tour small and personable . Never having done a food tour, we weren't sure what to expect but it was awesome.

We had 8 tastings. There was nothing I did not like. Would definitely go back to the restaurants for a meal. The guide Barri was lovely & very informative. Would definitely recommend this tour to any of our friends coming to New York.

Attended: Nolita/NoHo Food & Culture Tour
We THOROUGHLY enjoyed our Nolita/Noho tour. Our guide Anny made it so much fun. This was our first food tour and will definitely not be our last. Not only do we now want to try all of the different tours offered, we would actually do this one again, just to get to spend a few hours with Anny. This is an excellent way to get to know some fun facts about the neighborhoods you walk through. The foods we tasted were all really delicious. Can't wait to re-visit some of the fun restaurants we learned about. Highly recommend this tour!

Attended: Chelsea Market/Meatpacking Dist Food Tasting Tour
Darryl was an enthusiastic tour guide. My teens and I enjoyed this tour of Chelsea Mkt...perfect for a cold winter day, since most of the tour is indoors. Be sure to allow extra time after the tour ends to shop!

Attended: Chelsea Market/Meatpacking Dist Food Tasting Tour
Daryll was our guide. He is great. Full of enthusiasm, knowledgeable, and fully committed to the group.

I would highly recommend you have him as your guide.

As far as the tour itself, although the food is good and plentiful, the market itself can get boring after awhile. I would suggest to the company that they combine it with a few of the bars and restaurants in the area, so that one could get a broader view.

Daryll did provide commentary, but I don't feel that he had enough to work with.

The High Line and d a local hotel was included, but I would suggest even more of the outside area. Maybe even more of the High Line.

We have taken several other Tours of NY, and did prefer hearing of the local history as we walked several blocks.

The Market just seems repetitive after awhile.
