Itinerary

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 neighbourhoods have a vibrant mix of small, locally-owned, artisanal food shops unlike almost any other neighbourhood in America.  On this Brooklyn tour you will find out how these unique spots came to be, and with a local guide you’ll discover just what it is that makes them special.
We’ll visit both old school haunts and new culinary entrepreneurs to experience an exciting menu of both traditional flavours and daring dishes.  We'll stop into Italian and Middle Eastern shops that have long been the staple of the neighbourhood, and explore the growing scene of cafes and restaurants specializing in New American cuisine. While we enjoy their delicacies, we'll learn about the neighbourhood'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. The shops and food in this area have been featured in press and TV all around the world, from Australia to France, and is by consensus the best food neighbourhood in NYC. So definitely come hungry!
