What you’ll do

You’ll feast your way around Greenwich Village, a historic neighbourhood rich in Italian influenced culture, and even richer when it comes to food! We’re pretty sure no one here has a kitchen, they all love eating out too much. One of our NY hosts will help you navigate Greenwich Village, which is known as the centre of New York’s food map. You’ll snack in a classic “mom and pop” food shop as you hear about the Italian immigrants who brought their incredible food culture with them, head to Joe’s Pizza for one of their legendary slices, indulge in a freshly filled cannoli from Rocco’s and don’t forget to make room for some Sicilian arancini - decadent bites of fried rice stuffed with dreamy combos like Bolognese sauce and melted cheese. Your host can’t wait to share with you the Village’s boho history with you along the way too - even taking you to the spots which inspired Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan. Just don’t forget dessert! How do warm from the over choc’ chip cookies sound?

Our Picks

  • Join a food-fanatic (aka one of our NY hosts) on a 3-hour journey through the culinary delights of Greenwich Village

  • Sample from an array of Italian influenced meals, snacks and desserts, discovering the areas of Italian-American food culture

  • Your experience, your pace! You can choose to try all you can or perch at a classic mom and pop food shop to sample a few of their offerings

Great tour round Greenwich

Maurita was an excellent guide and host. We learned a lot about the area, sampled some great food and enjoyed a lot of good conversation during the tour. We had a great time and the time flew by despite the snow and rain!

Hi - die Tour war sehr interessant, vielfältig und sehr unterhaltsam

Wir würden den Guide wieder buchen, er hat uns auf viele Dinge aufmerksam gemacht und war sehr offen für unsere Wünsche, Fragen und Essens Interessen. Wir hatten einen regen wussensaustausch und hatten viel Spaß dabei. Die ausgewählten Testrestaurants und Cafés waren sehr freundlich, lecker und auch außergewöhnlich. Vielen Dank

Wonderful Food tour

Our food tour through City Unscripted was exactly what we were looking for. It was NOT a big group outing. It WAS our outing with a guide (Maurita). Our tour was based on our answers to a questionnaire of what we liked, disliked, and what we wanted to see, etc. It was a little more expensive then the other tours, but we definitely found value in it. As for Maurita, she was a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable (about many things NYC.). She is a journalist from Italy, so she has a very unassuming delivery when she is sharing her knowledge.
