The New York Tasting Tour
Have you even been to Ellis Island?
So do you think you can tell a typical New Yorker story? Yes, this is where over 12 million of immigrants arrived and were processed and sent off to what we now call "living the American Dream.” These people brought with them not only their whole lives’ belongings, but their unique cultures, backgrounds and foods. New York City has been known for decades as the cultural melting pot. With over 100 ethnic groups and cultures cohabiting, interacting, interchanging ideas, tastes, and perceptions within a relatively small space, claiming a slice of one’s own NYC cake can be challenging.
The Flavor of New York
When you take a slice out of the "Big Apple" you can get an surprising fusion of flavors; you can learn a lot about New York life just by eating. Take a journey with Parrott Tours as we embark on a true adventure around the world in two days! During our time together, we will travel from Eastern Europe along the streets of the Lower East Side, through the streets of Little Italy and Chinatown to the quiet streets of Greenwich Village. From savory to sweet we will delight your senses and make you hungry for more! From small joints, through fashionable street carts/food trucks and modern food halls, we expose you to the best kind of diversity in our city. Coffee from Sweden, or a little corner neighborhood café; celebrity chef inspired food hall or a food market; cronut or a crepe; we will even find a High Tea and honor the Queen! We will build a unique itinerary that suites your taste.
