Variety of Food - Interesting Walk

It was a drizzly day, but we still enjoyed many good places to eat and a short, informative walk around part of Greenwich Village. There was a variety of eateries, some new ones, and plenty of food. While we enjoyed all the food, we felt that it would have been more fun to focus on the long-established places that the Village is famous for with less food per place and more places. A combination of sit-down and eat on the run places made for variety in the pacing. Our guide explained the food in each place, and while she was very knowledgeable, hearing from the proprietor or chef in one or two places would have added some color. Even though all of us, men and women, were plenty full by the end of the tour, a bit more of the sweet or two places for dessert (one of us really wanted a cannoli) would have really topped it off.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our Greenwich Village tour. Our guide, Susan, gave a great overview and history of the area. The food selections were great in quality and variety. We have already recommended this tour to friends.

Fabulous Food Experience

We were recommended to Foods of New York Tours by a friend who attended a Heart of the Village tour last year. We chose the East Village tour and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Raheem, our guide, was informative, friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the mix of taste experiences and cultural information and would recommend the tour whole heartedly.

We were lucky enough to have really good weather for our tour, the first proper day of Spring, so eating on the kerbside was a pleasure.

As this was our first trip to New York, I doubt we would have visited the village area had it not been for the tour but I am so glad we did. There was a good mix of people on the tour and we enjoyed chatting to them as we ate our food and soaked up the atmosphere; so different to Manhattan where we were staying.

All in all a very memorable and pleasurable experience.

Thank you.

Great for families with teens. Very well-run, accommodates vegetarians, worth the price. Our guide was Raheem and he was terrific. Good mix of history, culinary info and delicious food. Lots and lots of food! Two opportunities to buy alcoholic beverages to go with the food, which was nice. I had an amazing mojito!

This is the 4th Food of New York Tour our group has been on over the years. Rahim was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about the area with much insight on the history of same. Each food stop provided more than just a tasting and one was better than the next. Highly recommend this tour as well as Rahim as your tour guide! We will be back next year for another!!

Loved the Food Tour. Besides good food it was very informative of the history of the streets of Greenwich village.

Word of warning, do not eat breakfast before you go, there's a lot of food....go hungry.
