LES food tour - excellent experience!

It was a very, very rainy day, but Seth made the tour fun and tasty! And he was skilled at finding scaffolding where our group could shake off the water and enjoy the delicious tastes. It was a great way to learn about new neighborhoods I had not experienced before. Essex Market was a highlight. Would highly recommend!
