Enjoy this tour instead of brunch! It’s so much food! What a great way to explore, learn and enjoy some of New York’s best and most unique food stops! And see two of New York’s most iconic and picturesque neighborhoods: Flatiron & Union Square. On this tour you will enjoy 6 full portion tastings including a very famous, classic New York burger.
This tour begins with tastings at Caffe Lavazza and Eataly, Mario Batali’s epic artisanal Italian food emporium. After experiencing Eataly, we explore Madison Square Park and learn about its incredible history as well as take in some contemporary outdoor sculpture art. Then, you are rewarded with a burger from arguably one of the best burger joints in New York: either Shake Shack (the original location that started it all!) or award-winning Schnippers Quality Kitchen! Non-meat eaters will enjoy a veggie sandwich. Next we stop for history and photo opportunities in front of the famous Flatiron Building.
We continue on to the chic Obica Mozzarella Bar for delicious amazing Roman pizza and then to Beecher’s Cheese, where believe-it-or-not, they make cheese right in the middle of Manhattan! Here we enjoy a quick tour and one of NYC’s best grilled cheese sandwiches. Then we walk through Union Square and the Union Square Farmer’s Market (Saturday only).
The last stop is either City Bakery for their famous hot chocolate and pastries or Bread’s Bakery for their famous chocolate babka warm and fresh from the oven!
