TAKE TJIS TOUR OF GREENWICH VILLAGE FOODS WITG CURT UPTON!!! You will NOT be disappointed. Stand-up comic, cook, NYC historian, and more all in one. Hysterical! And it says you'll go to about 5 places, but he'll take you to about eight! He is brilliant. No droning on, no kids whining, no endless standing.

A hot afternoon, but Paulette, our guide was entertaining, engaging, informative, considerate and warm. The history and trivia about the area, its restaurants and sites and, traditions was very informative and enjoyable. The food at some of the outlets was fantastic and at some was good, but then that's to be expected. The variety of the restaurants and types of... More

Our tour guide was Jordan. He did a great job leading us through the various stops in Greenwich Village and talking about the history of the area. From the pizza to the cookies, we loved the food at each stop. I couldn't imagine living in an area like this with so many specialty foods. It is definitely an area I... More

We took the Chelsea Market walking food tour. Curt was our guide. (Ask for him if you can). Not only was he totally knowledgeable about food and the market, he interjected humorous stories. If that wasn't enough, he memorized all our name before the tour started and continuously use them throughout the 3 hours we were together. The 10:30 tour... More

Our tour guide Barri was terrific in that she knew great detail about each restaurant we visited. Her discussion of the Village history was also engaging and educational. I'd recommend this tour to anyone interested in finding great places to eat in the Village.

In regards to the food in this Chinatown tour, I enjoyed two out of the three sit-down food stops. There was also a stop at a place that sold Asian candy, with an opportunity to take some tiny free samples. On this 6 p.m. start they don't stop at a Chinese bakery, as they do on the earlier starting times.... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
