Overview

Delve deeper into the food and multicultural history of Manhattan’s Lower East Side than you could alone on this small-group walking tour. Rather than guessing at eateries and foods to try, let a guide showcase local hotspots and specialties; and chart their European, Jewish, and other cultural roots. Taste snacks such as “knish” doughballs, “bialy” filled rolls, and more; and learn stories of 19th-century immigrant life that many travelers miss.
  • Explore the foods and history of the Lower East Side on a walking tour
  • Skip guesswork: let a guide introduce you to must-try eateries and snacks
  • Try “bialy” rolls, pickles, and more; and unpack the area’s immigrant past
  • Stop by the Tenement Museum and enjoy tastings that amount to a full meal

From pastrami that melts in your mouth to pickles that will make you pucker ... this tour offered a wide variety of foods and a real taste of NYC’s history. Dante was excellent. Tour was a great value. No one left hungry.

This was my second tour with Dante. I previously did the Greewich village one 3years ago, so when I came back on this trip I knew I had to try out the LES tour and I wasn't disappointed. We had 9 stops with a tasting at each place and not too much walking in between. There was no pressure to buy anything but the peach balsamic vinegar was too good not to get, plus some candy treats! I even went back to the bakery to get an everything bagel for my journey to Boston! Dante is an awesome guide. He is friendly and knowledgeable and makes sure that everyone is ok along the way. I can highly recommend doing this tour and hope to do one of Dante's tours again on my next visit from london!

My wife heard about this tour online. She specifically heard to ask for Dante. Little did we know, this was Dante's personal food tour. We have done a couple food tours in Greenwich. This one was the absolute best. Dante was extremely personable and down right fun. Nine stops! Are you kidding me? They were all awesome and we were totally stuffed. The group was great but Dante made it super fun. We loved that he was from Yonkers and knowledgeable about the Lower East Side. If we return with friends, we will have to introduce them to Dante and his amazing food tour! Thanks Dante! You rock!

A great afternoon spent visiting unique, local food places of historical interest to the lower east side. Dante, our host and guide was GREAT ! His information and enthusiasm made it all the more worthwhile. The added touches of visiting the new food hall and public spaces was truly special.
