Over the years, I have taken many a New York City food tour – being a food writer, I've always felt food tours, when conducted properly, are helpful in discovering culinary gems that I otherwise would miss. However, as the popularity of food tours exploded and the number of operators multiplied, it’s been harder to separate the good, bad, and just plain ugly tours…
…So this past weekend, tired of mediocre and novice companies looking for a quick buck, I decided to check out this OG in the food tour game, Foods Of NY Tours. Since 1999, Foods Of NY Tours has been giving food tasting and cultural walking tours through New York City's most delicious and historic neighborhood (it's a hard job... but somebody's got to do it!). The company offers a variety of neighborhood tours, but I decided to go with the tour that started it all – the Original Greenwich Village Food Tour.

Whew, what a lovely and tasty way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon! The Original Greenwich Village tour did not disappoint - I can't wait to explore more of New York's hidden culinary delights through Foods Of NY Tours (and of course, share with my readers) - so stay tuned!
