Learn to eat like a local on this fantastic, filling, half-day tour of Brooklyn’s trendsetting dining scene. Make your way to Manhattan’s West Village, where you’ll meet your local foodie guide and climb aboard a comfortable coach. After crossing the Williamsburg Bridge, begin by exploring Brooklyn’s hippest, hottest neighborhood. From acclaimed farm-to-table restaurants to third-wave coffee-roasting cafés, Williamsburg is a launching point for many popular culinary trends. It’s also home to many traditional ethnic enclaves, including an ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish community and deep Italian roots, so you can get an authentic taste of Italy with Neapolitan pizza and a creamy cannoli. Continue on to Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s traditionally Polish neighborhood, and pop in at a Polish restaurant to sample kielbasa and pierogis. View the beautiful Prospect Park and have a big slice of Neapolitan Pizza in Park Slope for an authentic taste of Italy. Then explore the deep Italian roots of Carroll Gardens with a creamy cannoli. In the DUMBO neighborhood at the base of the Manhattan Bridge, take a digestion break with a short stroll to the newly refurbished Brooklyn Bridge Park, where you’ll want your camera to capture unbeatable views of the Manhattan skyline. Then indulge your sweet tooth with the famous Bonbons of the Jacques Torres chocolate factory. Your appetite sated, enjoy the urban views on the return drive to Greenwich Village, where your tour concludes.
For Father's Day, I booked the Food and Cultural Tour of Brooklyn for my family. Rick was our tour guide and Carlos was our driver. The weather was threatening so it was a relief to be in a luxury bus for the tour. Very little walking required, although we could have used it given the amount of food we ate. Rick's knowledge of Brooklyn was beyond compare. I found it all facinating, and he was an absolute pleasure. The food stops included a meatball, falafel, pierogies and kielbasa, cannoli, chocolates, pizza and more. All the best of their neighborhoods. It was a great day. Could not recommend it enough. Thank you Rick and Carlos for such a great day.
What a great day! We saw and learned so much about Brooklyn! It was truly amazing and the food stops were fabulous! We canceled our dinner plans afterwards because we were stuffed! Our Guide, Rick, truly loves what he does and as a result, it was a great way to experience Brooklyn and a very memorable day!
Mr Rick (tour guide) and Mr Jerome (bus driver) truly showed us the best of Brooklyn’s food culture! Safe and comfortable bus transportation. Loved how Mr Rick gave us the history backgrounds of the neighborhoods and food culture. So much food is provided to taste.
Thank you Oasis, Table 87, Krolewskie Jadlo, Monteleone Bakery and Jacques Torres for your hospitality and great tasting food and desserts! Highly recommend this tour and these 4 places!
