Shopping & Tasting Tour Description


We'll meet in front of the Arthur Avenue Retail Market. Walking through the neighborhood, we'll visit bakeries, butcher shops, fish shops, and classic Italian delis. You'll find out where to find the best bread and the best mozzarella, see where you can get freshly filled cannoli, and see exactly how the sausage is made.  


Along the way, we'll enjoy bites of bread, cheese, and pastry, all leading to lunch at Mario's, one of NYC's oldest restaurants, for an Italian American feast.

The price of $95 includes all the tastings and lunch. If you have food allergies, please note them on the form when registering for the tour. Please note that we cannot accommodate gluten-free or vegan diets.
