ABOUT THE GREENWICH VILLAGE NYC FOOD TOUR

The tour begins in Washington Square Park, one of New York City’s most recognizable landmarks. Guests will learn the story of this neighborhood’s rich Italian heritage, starting with the first taste of the tour: fried arancini from a favorite family-run shop.

From there, head to a handmade pasta shop that’s been run by the same family for over a century and sample their delicious cheese ravioli made by the same traditional manual pasta-cutting machine that has been in use since 1906.

Next, enjoy a family-run café famous for importing high-quality Italian coffee before trying one of the Village’s most iconic pizza joints. After that, head to the shop that supplied the arancini you sampled earlier, learn about the family who has run the place for five generations, and pick up some of their signature Italian cured meats and cheeses to enjoy along the way.

Afterward, try a meatball from a hot spot that opened in the 1990s – fairly new by Greenwich Village standards – and top it off with an olive oil tasting led by your expert guide. And finally, since just one Italian dessert is never enough, try two! Enjoy freshly made pastries and Italy’s best-known sweet treat: gelato.
