About Our Lower East Side Food Tour

The picture of the pastrami sandwich almost says it all… I’m practically drooling just looking at it! Before we get to the food, let me paint you a picture of this unique experience. On this tour, we explore an area going through more changes than any other in Manhattan. At one time, this was the most densely populated place on earth and also a hub for shopping. These days, you can witness an up-and-coming hip neighborhood that’s a combination of old and new school – one that’s rich in history and stacked with famous eats.

In terms of history, you learn about the pushcart culture of the early 1900s, see the oldest synagogue in the U.S., and see the Tenement Museum. And, of course, you get to taste some of the most delicious food the city has to offer! Savor the best pastrami ever, and satisfy your sweet or your sour tooth. Speaking of the latter, you literally get yourself into a pickle on this tour! Bring your appetite!
