Hands down, this was the best 5 hours of our 2 weeks in NYC. Dave was fantastic, from the minute we made contact 6 months ago, all the way through, and even contacted us after the tour to give us a few ideas of other places we might want to eat at while we were in town. Fantastic. Dave's passion... More

WOW! This was a highlight of our trip to NYC! Our family of 4, (2 children aged 11 and 16) went on a food tour with Dave. Dave kindly took the time to find out if we had anything specific in mind that we wanted to try while in NYC, to see if he could accommodate it as part of... More

Dave did it again! I went on a tour with Dave years ago with my cousins. We concentrated on Italian places that time and had a great time. My poor husband, back in California, heard all about it and felt very left out. On June 12th, he finally got his turn. It was quite hot then and Dave asked the... More

We went on a northern Brooklyn, Long Island City, City Island, South Bronx and Harlem food tour a couple of days ago and it was as wonderful as we anticipated. My husband and I live in NYC and this is our second tour with Dave (as per my husband's birthday requests). Once again, Dave introduced us to places we never... More

My wife and I joined 3 others (strangers at first, friends at the end) for a driving tour. We wanted to get off Manhattan, and boy did we ever! Started off with a little taste of genuine NYC meat (lower Manhattan), before heading off on the best tour of anywhere I've been in a long, long time. The format was... More

I came back from NY a month ago and I'm still dreaming about the burnt ends I had on Dave's tour. It was life-changing BBQ. I didn't know meat could melt in your mouth that way. We did 10 places in 5 hours and I lost count of how many food orgasms I had. I definitely recommend seconds, when he... More

This tour was unlike anything else I have done in NYC. Dave is a great guy who knows his stuff when it comes to food - he takes you to all these great places that you wouldn't stumble across on your own. Not only does he know where to find this amazing food, he also knows the history of each... More

A trip to the Bronx and Queens and to see some surfer dudes and a really nice beach area was definitely a great way to spend few hours. Delicious array of food presented - really traditional American/Italian/Jewish - somewhat heavier for the experience but well worth the history education. Loved it and otherwise wud have thought NYC just another big... More
