Lower East Side Tour

Katz’s Deli – Stay for the Pastrami, Pose for a Picture

The best pastrami you’ll ever have. Period. But, it’s also so historical you just might want a photo in front of the storefront.

The Best Rugelach in New York

The word “Rugelach” in Yiddish means “little twists” – we try Russ and Daughter’s Raspberry ones and they are so darn good.

But first coffee… Best Coffee Spot in Greenwich Village

Porto Rico Importing Co. has the distinction of being the only coffee place on both my Greenwich Village and Lower East Side tours.

Great NYC Find: Olive Oil and Balsamic at Essex Market

Saad at Essex Olive and Spice in Essex Market – the new Essex Market I should add – is a great spot on our Lower East Side Tour.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dessert

Cinnamon raisin bagel with strawberry cream cheese at Kossar’s = where lunch or breakfast could also be dessert. Taste greatness.

Worth the Wait at Yonah

Crowded house at Yonah Schimmel. If you’ve had a knish here, you know why.

Let There Be Olive Oil (And Lots of It!)

Saad of Essex Olive Oil & Spice in the all new and beautiful Essex Market. If you haven’t seen the new digs yet, you’re missing out.

Dumplings All Around

Have you ever had the best Chinese dumplings in New York City? Come on my Lower East Side tour and I’ll hand deliver them to you courtesy of Vanessa’s Dumpling House.

Hydrate!

Outside of Yonah Shimmel’s Knish Bakery giving out some waters. You definitely need to hydrate on this tour especially during the summertime ☀️

50 Years of ‘Nice’

50 years of marriage and celebrating it on one of my tours. I was so honored. These two took my Lower East Side tour.
