Taste of Downtown Food Tour
Also known to locals as the sixth borough (as much New Yorkers want to deny it!) or “chilltown,” Jersey City’s downtown area has changed dramatically in the last few years, giving way to a culinary renaissance. Just a quick PATH ride from NYC, the Grove Street stop leaves you at the heart of downtown, where we’ll sample some of the best, newest, and hottest restaurants (seriously, come hungry!) this amazing city has to offer. Whether this is your first visit or you’re a longtime local, gain a new perspective on these awesome eateries.
After one afternoon and 5 restaurants later, you’ll know why media sources like The Daily News, The New York Post, Fox News (among many others) have named Jersey City as the hot new food destination in the NYC area. With plentiful food tastings, and meet & greets with the owners and chefs who make it happen, your local and knowledgeable tour guide will give you an insider look to these popular eateries.
Join us on this Saturday afternoon on a walking food tour to indulge on the best food this side of the Hudson. Our Best of Downtown Jersey City tour will give you a reason to take the last turn before the Holland Tunnel!
