Are you looking for the quintessential New York dining experience to share with out-of-town friends who will be visiting over the holidays? Then take them on the Ultimate New York Food & Culture Tour, a gustatory journey that features samplings of the foods that most typify the city and reflect its cultural diversity.

Your guests will get to know what all the fuss is about when it comes to New York-style pizza. They will sink their teeth into what is arguably the city’s most popular sandwich right now, the banh mi, and will enjoy a cupcake from the bakeshop that won the first season of “Cupcake War” on Food Network. Complete details can be found here along with a list of available dates.

The tour begins in front of the Kryolan City New York at 277 Bleecker Street. Tickets are $56.
