Greenwich Village has long been an epicenter for grass roots activism and social change, so it’s only right our food tour reflects this history by highlighting some of the best small businesses owned and operated by women, immigrants, and people of color.

From there, we’ll walk along the charming streets of Greenwich Village, past historic brownstones and iconic buildings.

As we walk, we’ll see some of the neighborhood’s most famous landmarks, including the Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement, and the former homes of literary giants like Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain.

Throughout the tour, we’ll delve into the fascinating history and culture of Greenwich Village, from its bohemian roots in the early 20th century to its role as a haven for activists and movements. And of course try some delicious food along the way!

Greenwich Village Food Tour - Eat Like a Local! April 2023

As a native New Yorker, I am very used to playing tour guide, so I was skeptical when invited to attend the Greenwich Village Food Tour. It was AMAZING! We started out in the historic Washington Square Park. Our guide, Lara, shared so much history about the Park that I didn’t know and we visited truly authentic and delicious female and immigrant owned eateries. We had a truly local experience and I will take my family and friends when they are in town!

Very Tasty and Informative Food Tour!!!

I had a wonderful time on my Greenwich Village food tour, and it was one of the best experiences I have had visiting that neighborhood! Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the culture and history of the city, and took us to some hidden gems for some delicious food stops that I would have never found on my own. We tried a variety of dishes, from locally owned and operated establishments by women, immigrants, and people of color. I particularly enjoyed the pork bun at Munchiez, which was very flavorful! The tour was well-organized and paced perfectly, with just the right amount of walking and eating. We had the chance to see several important historical sites, including the Stonewall National Monument, and learned about the events and people that shaped the city's LGBT history. I was particularly impressed by the guide's ability to connect the historical events to the modern-day city and its culture. I highly recommend this tour and Like A Local Tours for anyone interested in trying out amazing NYC food dishes and learning more about the iconic neighborhood of Greenwich Village!
