New York Neighbourhood Eats Tour – Brooklyn Experience

This Brooklyn Experience food tour has a local impact. By joining this tour you will help the local community.

Brooklyn’s Smith and Court Streets and surrounding neighborhoods have a vibrant mix of small, locally-owned, and artisanal food shops unlike almost any other neighborhood in America. On this Brooklyn food tour, you find out how these unique spots came to be, and with a local guide you discover just what it is that makes them special.
From Italian to Middle Eastern, New American to everything artisan, this NYC food tour shows you the best bites Brooklyn has to offer, from the people who make cuisine an art form. We visit both old school haunts and new culinary entrepreneurs to experience an exciting menu of both traditional flavors and daring dishes.

While we enjoy their delicacies, we learn about the neighborhood’s rich history and changing character. From artisan cheese and bread shops, Italian pastry stores, cafes with coffee roasters, the oldest Middle Eastern bakery in NYC, and a modern soda fountain, this corner of Brooklyn couldn’t get more unique if it tried. The shops and food in this area have been featured in press and TV all around the world, from Australia to France. Some of the original businesses in this neighborhood are facing challenges common to many small business owners in New York.
