Rocking the Flatiron with Food & Wondrous Factoids.

"I thought this was going to be a food tour but it was so much more — our tour guide is a wealth of information and constantly dazzled us with things that we who live in NYC didn’t know, including the fact that green street signs mean one thing, the brown and black signs something entirely different (historical). Want to know where “23 Skidoo” comes from? Why there are slate roofs on apartment buildings? And did you know there’s a working cheese factory in midtown?Besides eating the best that this district has to offer (excellent burgers, gourmet cheeses, thin-crust pizza, and chocolate cheese cake (AND we toured the bakery to see it being made) — it is SO worth doing a Like A Local Tours (@LikeALocalTours). We plan to do more with his company."

A fantastic, fun adventure in the heart of NY!!

"We had such a good time with our guide in the Flatiron District. The area we covered was very reasonable (not too much walking, just enough). We learned amazing history about the Gilded Age, the toy district, architecture, Madison Square Park and the first two Madison Square Gardens, etc. The food we sampled was delicious; we even went back to a couple of the places for more, after the tour. And then bought several babka’s from Breads to take back to the West Coast. This was a real treat! We’ll try one of their other tours on our next visit to NY."

Really enjoyable friendly food tour of Flatiron district.

Two friends and I took this tour. We all arrived ten minutes early – as did our host Josh – so we got off to a quick start. His enthusiasm for the buildings we passed as well as the food places we visited was infectious and we all shared many laughs. His descriptions of the area were informative without being too detailed. Eataly is an amazing food emporium, where we sampled the focaccia and had a few minutes shopping time. Then on to test an excellent burger, see cheese being made, and sample other cheeses, with a final stop for dessert.  All within an easy stroll of our starting point. Highly recommended.

Take a tour instead of lunch!

Our Flatiron Food Tour and Williamsburg Brooklyn Food Tour are both enough food for lunch. Let's get to it!
