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.

Everything about this tour was terrific. Our guide, Laurie, was kind, funny, and knowledgeable. The food was excellent--and there was so much of it. Plan to skip dinner following the tour--you'll be stuffed. A real plus was seeing how much my adult son enjoyed the tour. He moved to Brooklyn a month ago and really wants to get to know the place better. I noticed that he bookmarked in Yelp all the places Laurie mentioned so that he can visit them with friends. Foods of NY Yours and Laurie, many thanks for a super day.

My family loved and enjoyed this tour. Thank you to Mr. Rick for introducing Brooklyn to us. Quite educational, cultural and fun. Thank you also to Jerome (Navy Veteran) for being friendly and a good driver. Rick's knack for telling a story makes every boring book exciting. He's a gifted tour guide that knows how to capture his audience by the way he expressed his thoughts and feelings. He's real passionate at what he does. Thank you Rick...when the trip was over, we felt like we have known Brooklyn for a while. Like I told you at the end of the trip, you put the

Fantastic, interesting, well run. Tasty. Went to Polish restaurant, ate pizza, falafal, meatballs, chocolate, and Italian cannolis! Very little walking, the way I like it! The tour bus was very comfortable.

I really enjoyed learning about the history of the neighborhoods we visited in Brooklyn. In addition to the 6 selected Brooklyn neighborhoods Rick also provided great information about Greenwich VIllage and The Bowery.
The establishments selected for food were all unique and tasty. The falafel was my favorite dish on the tour. Rick provided lots of information that helped prepared me for the last 2 days of my trip to NYC. The driver Jerome did an excellent job. I cannot imagine driving in the NYC traffic and Jerome made it easy. Definitely take this tour! I am considering staying in Brooklyn on my next visit and exploring some of the neighborhoods in more detail.
