Food Tour - Historic Lower East Side

Journey back in time and experience the history of the old school Lower East Side.

On this food tour with Guide Adam, you will have the unique opportunity to explore what was once an immigrant and working-class neighborhood rich in ethnic diversity and really, really good food.

From the tenement homes to the countless pushcarts that roamed these streets, you will get to experience the very few old establishments left in the city. The neighborhood is also known for having once been a center of Jewish culture. As such, you will visit historic synagogues and sample delicacies from the best kosher-style delis and bakeries around.

Adam guides a tour with all the Williamsburg hits. You'll get to taste a real New York bagel, a slice of pizza only the locals know about, and some fun dishes that take American classics to a new level. Adam takes you on a loop of the neighborhood providing historical facts along the way with stops for amazing skyline views. He also showed us my new favorite grilled cheese in the city!

Adam was great! Super knowledgeable about the history of the area and took us to some delicious spots in Williamsburg that as a New Yorker I had never been to before (but will definitely go back!)
