What you'll do

On this three-hour tour of the Lower East Side, we eat our way through the streets as we sample delicacies from New York’s premier appetizing shop, ethnic eateries, and mom-and-pop restaurants. We'll taste mouthwatering food from century-old authentic Jewish delis and bakeries, a tres leches and blackout cake doughnut from award winner Doughnut Plant NYC, visit an old-fashioned candy store serving the neighborhood since 1937, and plenty more! You'll also learn about the culture and history of the neighborhood and its gentrification as we explore the Lower East Side’s historic tenement buildings and synagogues. Behind every great food establishment in this city, there is an equally great story of history, tradition, and even innovation. On my food tour in New York City, you discover these amazing histories while tasting what has made these eateries so prized among locals. Discover just what makes my food tour the best in the city!
