We were 6 women - ages 21 - 58, from PA, NM, Florida gathering to celebrate milestone birthdays. Darryl was one of the best tour guides I've had (& over the years I've been on many many tours). He was funny, knowledgeable, and somehow learned everyone's names within moments. Loved the variety of food we tasted and were also amazed at how much we got to eat. Definitely lunch for us all! The 3 main birthday girls got big cupcakes with candles & Darryl's rendition of "Happy Birthday" making Elani's even more special. Tasting everything from beef tartar to red velvet cupcakes to pulled pork made for a wonderfully varied culinary experience. We will definitely be back for full meals at some of the places next time we're in NYC. We also plan to schedule a different tour with this company, and would love to request Darryl if possible. We all HIGHLY recommend Foods of NY as a great way to get to know an area in the city. Thank you!!!

i know a lot about the recent history of Chelsea market and meat packing area that was great to learn. I heard not very much about the different types of food or about the shops themselves.

Nice tour guide who made sure we were all involved but not a tour I would recommend over other walking tours of New York

The Food Tasting Tour was fun and informative. Curt, our guide, made the tour even more fun with his wit and humor. I would highly recommend this tour if you are anywhere near the Meatpacking district.

Took this tour with my two adult (22, 26) children. Although I was born and raised in NYC, so much has changed that when I visit I feel like a tourist. This tour was an "insider guide" to the Chelsea Market, it's history and great eats. The tastings were delicious and having time to explore the shops was good as well. Learning about the history of the Meat Packing area and how it is being developed, also very informative. Daryl, our guide, was entertaining, engaging and really knowledgeable. My kids loved the tour as well. I can't wait to do another. Thanks!

The Tour was Good /Interesting - The Guide ,Curt was GREAT!!!. He made the whole thing worthwhile - He made it fun even with the crowds inside the market. Everyone in my party of 8 agrees with this statement. If anyone asks me I would tell them to ask for Curt before taking the tour.

The tour exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide, Darrell, knew every persons name and enthusiastically talked about the history of the area. We got to try a bunch of amazing food that I wouldn't have known about if we hadn't been on this tour. Although going into the tour I knew would we have a great time, by the end of the tour we were amazed by how much this tour had to offer.
