One of the things Famous Fat Dave will tell you is that he appreciates people to call him “Famous Fat Dave”, as opposed to “Famous Dave” or “Fat Dave”, apparently those titles belong to other individuals.
The Famous Fat Dave food tour is a MUST for anyone that has a remote interest in sampling NYC’s culinary offerings.
Dave, as I’ll call him here, took us around for four hours, touring the various boroughs. If my memory, level of attention, or knowledge of geography were better, I’d name what boroughs we toured – it may have been all five but I can’t say for sure. We sampled seven different offerings from jerk shrimp to back bacon, to lobster maki.
The experience is one-of-a-kind: a tour of NYC in a vintage white Checkers cab (you can expect to get a lot of stares) eating up food gems from here and there (remember to pace yourself, Dave offers 2nds and 3rds but the strategy is to hold out for the next offering).
Dave is very knowledgeable about just about everything. Hanging out with him is a very relaxing experience. The hours will fly by and you, including your belly, will be very content at the end of the tour.
The next time I am in NYC, I will definitely be calling Dave up for Round II.
