Your food tour starts beside the Stonewall Monument, where your local guide will give you an introduction to the history of this unique neighborhood and the various counter-cultures that have called it home. Then you'll head to the nearby John's Pizza for your first dish of the evening, one of New York's most beloved cheese slices. As you eat, you'll learn how this Italian institution became the preferred street food of New York.

Strolling deeper into the neighborhood, you'll pop into one of our favorite restaurants to try some appetizers paired with a glass of wine chosen by the in-house sommelier. Don't fill up, your next stop is another restaurant - Michael Greco's Cantina Giulietta which draws on the Village's deep Italian heritage to serve up some of the best New York-style Italian food in the city. Here, you'll enjoy two full courses: a fresh pasta and house-made meatballs. In between, you'll also enjoy a guided olive oil tasting and a glass of wine chosen from the pages of Wine Spectator by the sommelier.

No Greenwich Village food tour is complete without something sweet. To get your fix, we're taking you to the coolest new place in the Village, Pop Bar. This popular spot takes traditional gelato and makes it into popsicles. Choosing from their extensive menu, you can go with an old favorite, like coffee, or spice it up a bit with pumpkin pie or vanilla salted caramel.

Ice cream in hand, you'll stroll over to the Cornelia Street Cafe, which has been the preeminent concert and performance art venue in the village since 1977. Here you'll grab a drink at the bar and then decide whether to stay on to see a show (not included in the ticket price) or head out in search of more nightlife with recommendations from your guide.
