Another Great Food Tour

The Central Greenwich Food Tour was great. Raheem was our guide and was friendly and knowledgable about the area, food and culture. The portions provided were a great size and very filling. I liked Toloache (which was new to the tour). We had dinner at another Toloache location the night before and had enjoyed it. The tasting was something different on the menu for us. I will say that their guacamole was delicious and would be a great addition to the tasting. This is the 3rd food tour that I've done with Food Tours of NY and hope to do more when returning to NYC. Our group included myself, my husband and 2 teenage daughters (who loved it, too).

Rahem was AWESOME!

I honestly didn't know what to expect from this tour because as a local I never really do touristy things. A friend had bought tickets as part of a bachelor party weekend.

We had Rahem as a guide. He was very informative and witty. He obviously knows the neighborhood. You can tell that he has a good rapport with the business owners and workers. He was very interactive with the group and made it a point to know our names.

I thought we'd just walk around and would eat a little bit from a few restaurants in the neighborhood.

I was wrong. We all got a bit of history with our delicious tastings.

It was a great experience and I will definitely go back to a few of the restaurants that we visited.

I saw the village from a completely different aspect and it was DELICIOUS!

We really enjoyed our experience. The tastings were so much larger than expected and everything was delicious. Our guide Raheem was very knowledgeable about the food and the area, and really funny and engaging. I will definitely be going back to some of the places we visited on the tour for full meals next time I am in New York.

Our tour guide, Raheem, gave us a wonderful tour of Central Greenwich Village. He had vast knowledge of the history and culture of many places along the way which made our three hour tour both an interesting and delicious way to spend an afternoon in NYC.

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area - both in history and food- and he made it so entertaining! We had delicious tastings along the way and got alot more food than we expected. This is my second Foods of New York tour and both were awesome. A great way to see NYC!
