What you'll do

On this experience we will answer the question "what is a sandwich?" as we FEAST on three different interpretations of the sandwich.

Together we'll visit destinations that you will not find in a typical tourist guidebook as we eat our way through the history and evolution of the sandwich. Along the way we'll hear stories about the sandwiches we are eating and the people who are making them. We'll discover street art and we'll also learn how the people of the East Village have influenced the sandwich game in New York.

Come with an open mind, leave with a FULL stomach!

Please note that all appropriate covid safety measures will be utilized, so PLEASE BRING A MASK. Due to covid sandwich locations may be subject to change - not all locations in the video will be available.

* Don't see a day/time that suits you? Ask me for a new time and I can try to accommodate.

Sorry, this tour is not ideal for gluten-free folks.

We really enjoyed this experience. Ben was a fun & charming guide who knew a lot about the NYC food scene and gave great recommendations (and this is coming from two New Yorkers!) He was also super helpful in accommodating our dietary restrictions, which we greatly appreciated. We'd highly recommend!

This was a 10/10 tour. You can't flaw it any way you look at it - we got a really interesting historical journey through the East Village, eating our whole way through it. What else could you ask for in NYC. I didn't realise I had a passion for sandwiches until doing this tour, I found myself continuing the search for the perfect sandwich for the rest of our weekend in the City! Ben was super friendly and personable, funny and knowledgeable. Do the tour, it' great.

Danke Ben für die tolle Tour! Alle 3 Sandwiches waren wirklich etwas besonderes. Ben weiß sehr viel über die Geschichte des Viertels und man merkt ihm seine Begeisterung für Sandwiches sofort an. Ich kann die Tour jeden empfehlen!

My wife and I came on this tour as an anniversary adventure. We are born and raised in NY but wanted to experience NYC from a different lens. Ben was super knowledgeable about the history of Alphabet City and its amazing sandwiches. Loved this tour so much and would highly recommend it to tourists AND residents!
