West Village Food Tour in New YorkBuy tickets now
The West Village Food Tour in New York has a double benefit: you’ll sample local bites of the best family businesses and while you walk from one eatery to the next, you’ll see loads of West Village as well. The guide takes you and your small group on a tour visiting the favourite eateries of the locals, in one of the city’s liveliest neighbourhoods. After this tour full of bagels, cupcakes and other snacks, you won’t need to have lunch anymore! And you might want to skip breakfast too.
Food Tour Through the West Village
In New York, you don’t have to look long and hard to find an eatery. But this is even better: a real New Yorker will show you the best spots and lets you taste their bites as well! With this tour, you walk through the picturesque West Village, a favourite of artists and celebrities alike. You’ll take a leisurely 2.5-mile stroll, along six different neighbourhood eateries. Your guide will tell you all about them. The tour starts at Bleecker Street, one of my favourite streets in New York, with its cosy atmosphere and its many nice eateries. You’ll start sampling straight away, with homemade soppressata and arancini made by Faicco’s Italian Specialities. The guide will then take you through hidden alleys and along New York’s famous brownstone houses and tells you all about the buildings and places that you’ll pass. You may even recognise Monica’s house from Friends!
The Best Eateries
Along the way you stop at six of the area’s best eateries and discover hidden gems, you would have easily missed otherwise! Enjoy falafel at the city’s oldest falafel restaurant, Mamoun’s Falafel for example and – my personal favourite – a delicious slice of artichoke pizza at Artichoke Pizza. A New York Food tour isn’t complete without tasting bagels, of course, baked according to authentic New York recipe, boiling the dough before baking it. The tour ends after about three hours close to its starting point, La Guardia Place.
