If you’ve ever wondered what New York tastes like, you’ll find out on this experience with a local insider leading the way through Greenwich Village. You’ll feast on the dishes that are close to every New Yorker’s heart, from warm-from-the-oven choc’ chip cookies to creamy New York cheesecake, to Sicilian-style arancini - decadent bites of fried rice stuffed with dreamy combos like Bolognese sauce and melted cheese. Snack in a classic ‘mom and pop’ shops as you hear about the Italian immigrants who brought their incredible food culture with them, indulge in a freshly filled cannoli and float away into New York food heaven as you bite into classics like bagels with lox or a door-stopper sized pastrami sandwich.
You’ll explore Greenwich Village, an enclave in lower-west Manhattan which really does feel like a village. Neighborhood delis cozy up alongside late-night jazz bars, and cafe culture reigns, with bistros and bakeries all having tables which spill out onto the tree-lined sidewalks. For a real taste of New York and its classic dishes which have evolved and devolved, there’s nowhere like the Village for a quintessential slice of NY (and we’re not just talking about a slice from Joe’s, which serves the cheesiest, melting-onto-the-plate pizza in Manhattan). You could visit legendary spots like Magnolia Bakery, famous for its irresistible cupcakes, or let your host lead you to only the hidden delis, bakeries and shops which are loved by locals.
