My friend and I meet in New York every few years... We've done the museums, the shows, the typical "tourist attractions". I went to New York University for grad school and thoroughly enjoyed the Greenwich Village experience in the late 70s. Of course, I was young, working and going to school at the time and never took advantage of the many restaurants, theatre and unique shops and services.

This tour provided my friend and I an opportunity to have fun, explore the culinary treats that are abundant in this area. The price was more than reasonable, with all that was included. Our tour guide was excellent. He kept things moving, didn't linger too long, but didn't rush us either. He was very knowledgeable about the area because he had lived there for many years. His sense of humor was wonderful (don't we all need a good laugh these days?) He was warm, thoughtful and personable. He was attentive to the needs and interests of the participants and entertained us with his many "inside" stories about the characters and the legends that embodied the village. Last, but not least, the food. Oh, the food! Just the right amount, variety and of course the best quality. I ordered some olive oil from one of the shops we visited and will return to several other of the merchants when I return to NYC. Next time I hope to bring my husband on the tour, or perhaps another one of the "Food Tours".

Ramheed was a font of knowledge about the history of Chinatown as he enthusiastically led us through out of the way areas and educated us on all things Chinese including food, herbal medicine and culture.

Our tour guide was Michael who made the tour. He has spent many, many years in the Village, and he holds history that made the tour come alive. He was also very up-beat, enthusiastic, and fun. The locals seemed to know him and warmly greeted him as we did the tour. He took care of us so everyone was acknowledged and we knew a little about each other person on the tour. And, the food was terrific!!!!

He helped us feel very comfortable in the much so that the next morning we went back to have coffee.

The Sushi and Japanese Tapas Food Tasting Event

Our leader was enthusiastic and well-informed which made for an entertaining evening. The restaurant served perfect portions of tasty tapas and sushi. We feasted with our eyes, palettes and learned a lot. Several tapas were memorable and the sake was premium grade. Thanks!

The Sushi and Japanese Tapas Food Tasting Event
Thu, Sep 4, 08   6:30 PM jchristopher Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
If you're a sushi lover this event is a must! The food itself is outstanding, but the real treat is the extensive knowledge of the host. The in depth detailed descriptiveness given to each item brought in front of us was mind blowing. Where's the book? I highly recommend this for any anyone, whether it is a large group or a couple you'll have a blast.

Enjoyed the tour, got a decent amount of delicious food to taste. Would have been better if all the tastings weren't just in Chelsea Market, though the market does have some great stuff. Enjoyed the history provided about the MP district, but could have spent more time walking around in it.

This is a wonderful tour. I can't believe I have been going to the village since 1962 and never knew how much I didn't know about the place. To have the myriad of places to visit whittled down to a choices of the "best" was just terrific! My husband and I really enjoyed finally knowing more details of the history of the area. Our guide was so knowledgeable, anything we asked, she knew the answer. She made our tour just so much fun! Her personality was great, a real "New Yorker"!! I recommend a $ raise for her! Every tour I have taken by the "Foods of New York" has been like a college class in detailed history of places and foods. Thank you so much!! Keep up the good work. I look forward to every tour in the future! Do more parts of Manhattan!

A great way to spend an afternoon in New York!!

Our guide was very engaging and full of great insider information about the food scene in the Central Village and SoHo. Aside from the food, he also was very knowledgeable and had great perspective around the history of the area.

There were lots of tastings and the range of tastings was also impressive in terms of variety of cuisines (both savory and sweet).

My only regret was that we didn't do the tour earlier in our trip so we could go back and do some of the things he mentioned. So if you're planning on doing a tour, do it as early in your trip as possible - you'll want to go eat at some of the restaurants that you hear about on the tour.

I'll do another one the next time I'm in New York for sure. New York is best seen on foot and this tour was a wonderful experience - I highly recommend it.
