Hell's Kitchen Food Tour
US$ 89.00

This food and small-group walking tour of Hell’s Kitchen is a perfect introduction to the neighborhood and the breadth of restaurants in NYC. As you follow your guide through the area, sample foods representative of immigration to the area at various points in the city’s history. The guide’s recommendations of restaurants, bars, and cafes loved by locals will come in handy once the tour is over.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and your group of no more than eight for a lunchtime walking tour of Hell’s Kitchen. The tour begins at Gyu-Kaku, a Japanese barbecue restaurant just off Times Square.

As you listen to the guide give a fascinating overview of the area—including how it got its name—visit hidden gems and hole-in-the-wall shops that you might not have noticed otherwise.

Items on the afternoon’s tasting menu may include empanadas, baba ganoush, and custom-made donuts. As you sample a range of cuisines, learn about the neighborhood’s waves of immigration and rich cultural history.

As the tour comes to a close, the guide gives recommendations to suit the interests of everyone, from the best pubs in the area to the best activities around nearby Central Park.
