What you'll do
CURRENTLY RATED THE #1 AIRBNB FOOD EXPERIENCE IN NEW YORK!!! Eat your way through the history and evolution of the best thing to happen since sliced bread—the sandwich! After learning about the origins of the very first sandwich (and eating its modern-day equivalent), we’ll visit NYC eateries that you won't find in a typical guidebook. We'll try different interpretations of this simple meal, explore kitchens, and understand how the people of the East Village have influenced the sandwich scene. With our bellies full, we'll discuss "What is a sandwich?" at a local bar—you might be surprised at your answer. Don't see a day/time that suits you? Drop us a message as I can often plan additional times. And for all the vegetarians out there, check out my new vego-friendly sandwich tour "A Global Sandwich Tour of New York" also on Airbnb Experiences.
Hi, I’m Ben (better known as “A Man and His Sandwich”). As a passionate foodie, I’ve searched the globe for the world's best sandwiches. 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!
