      In an enclave that feels so authentically “New York”, the diversity of Greenwich Village’s food is astounding. International cuisine is part of the neighborhood’s fabric, from the Italian-influenced East Village overflowing with pizza, cannoli, and Sicilian arancini to Jewish bakeries in the West Village, churning out pastries and chocolate-streaked babka. That’s why so many things to do in Greenwich Village revolve around food – brand-new restaurants regularly open beside century-old mom-and-pop joints, and there’s no type of cuisine you can’t find on food tours in Greenwich Village.

      A history built on food and music

      Greenwich Village is steeped in history – much of it musical. A hangout for the beatniks, musicians and starving artists of the 60s, it’s the neighborhood once frequented by icons like Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen. The city’s artistic past echoes through its historic jazz bars and live music taverns – must-have experiences on the list of things to do in Greenwich Village. After a night of live music, why not visit some of the old eateries adored by the musicians of the neighborhood’s bohemian heyday? Today, they’re still some of the best restaurants in NYC.

        Dean was a WONDERFUL guide for our family of 3 visiting the City. Was very attentive from the beginning of our day together to get a sense of our interests, outlining a possible itinerary based on our needs and was outstanding in giving a fabulous blend of history, personal experiences and even obscure information about famous sites. He was a perfect blend of easy going nature, offering interesting information and had a wide range of knowledge. Would HIGHLY recommend!

        Ross shared a lot of history with us about NYC and Harlem. The food was great and the establishments were interesting. Ross made sure we were comfortable with the pace. He made sure we knew how to return to our accommodations before leaving us near the subway. He spent extra time with us, too! Before our tour, Ross effectively communicated through email and text to assure us where he would meet us. Although the tour was pricey, we would recommend it to others. We will definitely book another tour :)
