Escape crowded Manhattan for a less-visited borough – Brooklyn! Eat like a local as you explore the delicious eateries sprinkled around Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood with a local guide. Taste ethnic and local cuisine, and go off the beaten path to see how Brooklyn's diverse residents get their food fixes. Make sure to come hungry! This walking tour includes stops anywhere from new artisanal food shops to historic Middle Eastern markets.
  • Explore Brooklyn like a local with your guide and small group for company
  • Enjoy a number of generous samples at different shops in Carroll Gardens
  • Learn about the history of Brooklyn and its culinary scene from your guide
  • Receive a neighborhood map to use for later explorations
What to Expect
This small-group tour of Carroll Gardens and its food scene kicks off at Stinky Bklyn, an artisanal cheese shop. This tour occurs over lunchtime and includes a generous array of nibbles, so come ready to snack. Sample some cheese, and hear stories about the cheese shop before heading to your next stop. As you explore what Carroll Gardens has to offer, your guide shares stories about the neighborhood, about Brooklyn’s history, and the business owners who have helped turn the area into a hot spot for food lovers. During the tour, you visit a number of stops, including a Middle Eastern bakery, an Italian coffee shop, and an old-fashioned soda fountain. In addition to the culinary stops, you’ll also get to admire the characteristic brownstone houses found in the area. The tour ends on Court Street, near a subway station.
