Our guide, Matthew (who helps write the tours), was very easy to speak with and very informative. We were lucky to have a small group and plenty of time to ask questions. Of the three pizza's, we liked John's the best for it's true simplicity. The sauce at Bleecker street was amazing. Beer breaks were nice and provided opportunity to... More

Ian was great! Loved this tour. We visited very different restaurants, tried knishes, pastrami, pickles donuts, dumplings, I am vegetarian and Ian made sure I had something to eat at every restaurant. Ian was funny, informative, helpful and kept all of us safe, happy and moving along.

We took the Midtown tour of food carts and trucks. Our leader Melania gave us lots of interesting information about the businesses. We learned a great deal-- and we certainly enjoyed the samples that we tried. Melania took us to a variety of carts/trucks where we sampled foods like chicken Parmesan calzones, Mexican-Korean fusion, and waffles. We will definitely take... More

Had a wonderful afternoon with Ian as our guide on a chilly Monday am. He was very informative of the area and fun too. We ate our fill while we learned the story behind local businesses. We had knish, pickles, meatballs, pastrami. Dumplings doughnuts and more. It's spread out over 3 hours so you aren't stuffed or still hungry .... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
