The Greenwich Village Food Tour with our guide Jasmin was a delightful culinary adventure through one of New York City's most iconic neighborhoods. My friend Richard and I thoroughly enjoyed the diverse tastings we were introduced to, making our way through charming streets. Jasmin was knowledgeable and engaging, effortlessly weaving historical tidbits with current culinary trends. The highlights for me were definitely the crisp, flavorful falafels, the classic New York slice at Bleecker Street Pizza, and the astonishing variety of chocolates that offered something for every palate at Varsano's chocolates. Each stop was carefully chosen and showcased the best of local food artisans. Overall, this tour is a must for anyone looking to explore Greenwich Village through its food. Jasmin’s passion and expertise only enhanced the experience, making it memorable and highly recommended for food lovers and curious travelers alike.

I recently joined the Greenwich Food Tour, and it was an absolute delight, especially thanks to our guide, Jasmin. She was knowledgeable and engaging, bringing the culinary history of Greenwich to life with her vibrant storytelling. Among the standout experiences were the Belgian fries, perfectly crispy and golden, and the cupcakes, which were a dreamy, decadent treat. Jasmin’s enthusiasm and expertise not only made the food shine but also enriched our understanding of the local food scene. This tour is a must for foodies looking for a well-rounded experience in Greenwich.
