New York City has some of the most delicious food experiences on the planet. Come explore the New York City Historic East Village Food Tour through a tempting and delectable tour!
“Join James and Karla Murray, authors and photographers of the critically acclaimed books, “Store Front II – A History Preserved: The Disappearing Face of New York”, on this walking and tasting tour: New York City Historic East Village Food Tour.
Explore some of their favorite East Village food establishments.
In other words, discover the food, history and diverse culture of the East Village while tasting delicious specialties from at least 6 different tasting stops.
Many family-run businesses started out as traditional mom-and-pop stores passed down from generation to generation, and defined their neighborhoods.
These modest small businesses are falling away in the face of modernization, gentrification, and conformity. The once unique appearance and character of New York City’s colorful streets suffers in the process.
On this tour, you will learn about the diverse German, Italian, Jewish and Ukrainian history of the East Village. You’ll try some fresh homemade Italian mozzarella, drink an authentic New York City egg cream or have a freshly roasted cup of coffee.
Also, taste a hot Ukrainian potato pierogi with toppings, sample a freshly baked Jewish sugar cookie and enjoy an authentic New York hot dog and tropical drink. Lastly, taste a freshly baked Italian cannoli.
Enough food will be sampled so that, for most people, lunch afterwards is not needed.”
