Recommended by Fodor's Travel! Small group walking tour.

Enjoy a Flatiron smorgasbord for lunch! What a great way to explore and enjoy some of New York’s best and most unique food stops! And see two of New York’s most iconic and picturesque neighborhoods: Flatiron & Union Square. On this tour you will enjoy 6 tastings including one classic New York burger as well as two private tours only available to our tour group!

This tour begins with tastings at Caffe Lavazza and Eataly, Mario Batali’s epic artisanal Italian food emporium. After we explore Eataly, we stop for history and photo opportunities in front of the famous Flatiron Building. Then we continue on through Madison Square Park taking in the beauty, outdoor sculpture art, and learning some incredible historical facts. The next stop is equally as legendary: Shake Shack or Schnipper's, where you will experience arguably one of the best burger joints in NYC! Non-meat eaters will enjoy their specialty shake. We continue on to Obica Mozzarella Bar for straight-from-Italy pizza & burrata then Beecher’s Cheese, where believe-it-or-not, they make cheese right in the middle of Manhattan! Here we enjoy a quick private tour and one of NYC’s best grilled cheese sandwiches. Then we top the whole tour off with a walk through Union Square, and a treat so special from the Union Square Farmer’s Market that we don’t dare mention it here! The last stop is a private tour at Bread’s Bakery where you will also sample their famous babka!
