What you'll do
CURRENTLY RATED THE #1 AIRBNB FOOD EXPERIENCE IN NEW YORK!!! Don't see a day/time that suits you? The check out my new sandwich tour "Feast on the Wide World of Sandwiches" for more available dates. Airbnb link here: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/438902 So you think you know what a sandwich is? Well, think again. On this experience we will seek to answer the question "what is a sandwich?" - a simple question with a surprisingly complex answer - as we eat our way through various interpretations of this dish. After eating New York's version of the very first sandwich ever created, we'll unpack the history and evolution of this dish as we visit NYC dining destinations that you won't find in a typical guidebook. Along the way, we'll explore kitchens where our sandwiches are made, discover fascinating street art, and also learn how the people of the East Village have influenced the sandwich game in New York City. Then, with our bellies and minds full, we'll try to finally decide what makes a sandwich, as we enjoy a beverage at a local bar. Be warned, you might be surprised at your answer!

Documenting my adventures along the way, I've published articles, recorded podcasts, and spoken on panels all about this simple expression of culinary perfection. Having led NYC food tours for over 2+ years now, I want to share my adventures with fellow sandwich enthusiasts on this fun and educational day out - so join us on this delicious exploration of the East Village!
