The Rick Bedrosian
New York City Food & History Walking TourNYC’s Historic Greenwich Village
Saturday, May 5th, 2018
While Midtown Manhattan is known for it’s Broadway shows, glitzy marquees and immense skyscrapers, New York’s Greenwich Village offers a more casual side of the city that never sleeps. It’s easy to feel like a local while eating or shopping there. Unlike 5th Avenue or SoHo, the pace is slower in the Village, the streets are relatively quiet and the scale is small. It’s no wonder so many artists, actors, writers and musicians have lived in Greenwich Village. Notable residents past and present include Jimi Hendrix, Lou Reed, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Matthew Broderick, Claire Danes, Will Ferrell, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Belushi, Fiorello LaGuardia, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford, Mario Batali, Henry Paul, John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Greenwich Village is a tremendous place to sample some of the best food New York City has to offer without fighting huge crowds. Bring a hearty appetite. There will be plenty to see, smell, taste and bring home. Most New York City food tours last a couple hours and you have to get yourself there and back. Spend all day with eminent musician, food enthusiast and traveler Rick Bedrosian as he leads you through the small winding streets, peculiar alleys, historic sites, old world restaurants and specialty shops that are abundant in Greenwich Village. Rick has eaten his way through the Village dozens of times, constantly seeking out the finest fare Greenwich Village has to offer. He’s discovered some pretty significant landmarks too.
Be prepared for some delectable barbecue, pizza, Middle Eastern, Italian, Mexican, Asian, tapas, coffee, desserts and more. In between bites you’ll see some pretty awesome sights! Price includes transportation to and from Albany, NY, personal escort throughout and tastes at four or five different locations. We’ll stop for a sit down meal and/or drink (at your expense) at an outstanding restaurant immediately before departing for home. The tour will take place rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes and dress accordingly. Light layers are always best. If the weather forecast calls for rain, be sure to bring an umbrella. There will be opportunities to consume alcohol but this is NOT a pub crawl.
