The Mister and I are absolutely obsessed with taking walking food tours as a way to explore new neighborhoods, imbibe in delicious gems while getting some outdoor exercise (yes we are the couple who wear the matching athletic gear walking around town). Since we stayed local this past Labor Day weekend, we decided to take Like a Local Tours’ Saturday Williamsburg Bites Food Tour. In our numerous years of living in Manhattan, we realized we had never been to the hipster hangout across the river! Given that the city traffic pretty much dies during Labor Day weekend, we thought there was no better time to check out the local flavor in this trendy Brooklyn enclave.
So at 2PM, we met up with our group of hungry history lovers and our Bed-Stuy native tour guide Ben at Station Restaurant. Right off the bat, we were greeted with welcome cookie from the restaurant (although not officially part of the tour, it was still a great way to kick the afternoon off!).
