Original Multi-Ethnic Eating Tour
Southwest corner of Delancey and Essex Streets, in front of the Chase Bank.

Reservations Required & Pre-Bookings Accepted This tour combines the history of the diverse Lower East Side with a series of small food sampling, or “noshing” stops from local shops and markets. The main focus of our tour is the history of the multi-ethnic Lower East Side emphasizing the neighborhoods of the Jewish East Side, Little Italy and Chinatown. During the course of our walk we will sample about 10 different items, representing the Dominican, Jewish, Italian & Chinese communities of the Lower East Side. Most of these items are vegetarian or dairy. All food sampling will be done outdoors and we do not include restaurants on our tour. Our “noshing” tour uses the markets & shops to highlight the history and this walk should not be considered a meal. The Multi-Ethnic Eating Tour costs $5 per person additional, with a total cost of $25 for adults & $20 for full time students, active military & seniors (65+ years). This covers the cost of all food samples. TO RESERVE: Please click the “BOOK NOW” button below to reserve space on this walking tour. You will receive a confirmation email soon after reserving and a receipt once your credit card has been charged. If someone in your party is eligible for a senior discount, please use the coupon code “SENIOR” when booking. For our active military discount, please enter “MILITARY”. For full-time student please use coupon code “STUDENT”. If you have questions please email us at PLEASE NOTE: booking a combination of adults with students and seniors has highlighted a flaw in our e-commerce system. Please enter number of adults and select “Traveling with children” to indicate number of discounted persons. We apologize for this inconvenience and are working with our third-party e-commerce provider to develop the system we require.
