Craving a pierogi? Or maybe a falafel? Ruggelah sounds good, too. It’s just too bad there isn’t a place that can satisfy your craving for all types of ethnic treats at once. Oh wait... there is! On this food adventure, you'll explore the East Village with its unrivaled food and ethnically diverse community. Savor a delicious array of cuisines and flavors, including a cannoli from a landmark pasticceria, falafel from the city’s oldest falafel shop, and a class “black and white” cookie from a Jewish bakery, which was voted the best smelling shop in the city. Don’t worry about the calories because you’ll burn it all off with a history and cultural tour of the area. Good food and good stories -- what more could you want?
