From Italian to Middle Eastern, New American to everything artisan, this NYC food tour shows you the best bites Brooklyn has to offer, from the people who make cuisine an art form. Sample breads, cheeses, pastries, and more to nibble at the rich palette that is the New York food scene, and do it all with a local by your side to give you the lowdown on why this city is just so darn tasty. Discover the delicious mom-and-pop shops and restaurants of Brooklyn to experience how food is the engine of our local ecosystem. Brooklyn’s Smith and Court Streets and surrounding neighborhoods have a vibrant mix of small, locally-owned, and artisanal food shops unlike almost any other neighborhood in America. On this Brooklyn food tour, you find out how these unique spots came to be, and with a local guide you discover just what it is that makes them special. We visit both old school haunts and new culinary entrepreneurs to experience an exciting menu of both traditional flavors and daring dishes. We stop into Italian and Middle Eastern shops that have long been the staple of the neighborhood, and explore the growing scene of cafes and restaurants specializing in New American cuisine. While we enjoy their delicacies, we learn about the neighborhood’s rich history and changing character from the local business owners and residents themselves. From artisan cheese and bread shops, Italian pastry stores, cafes with coffee roasters, the oldest Middle Eastern bakery in NYC, and a modern soda fountain, this NYC food tour couldn’t get more unique if it tried.
