Eat your way through New York on a Williamsburg Foodie Experience!
Today, the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn is defined as the epicenter of cool. But, this was not always the case. The neighborhood has undergone a lot of changes since it was first created as a suburb of New York. The opening of the Williamsburg Bridge in 1903 brought a lot of new industries, as well as second-generation Americans wanting to escape poverty and overcrowded living conditions of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Then, during World War II, Europeans fleeing war came. Later, many artists came to Williamsburg because of the cheap rent and its proximity to Manhattan. In a way, this started the gentrification process in the mid- 1990s. Now, Williamsburg has become a favorite hunting ground for music-lovers and foodies.
Start your whirlwind foodie tour at a traditional Polish bakery, where you will try delicious pierogis and pastries. Then, enjoy two different types of pizza that come highly recommended by the New York Times. You’ll fall in love with the bagel bombs and cereal milk ice cream at Momofuku Milk bar, too! It’s owned by celebrity chef Christina Tosi of Master Chef fame. Afterwards, savor artisanal chocolate from a local Brooklyn factory and try some tasty ice cream made by an Iron Chef contestant. Next up, a native Kentuckian cooks authentic BBQ using his grandmother’s recipes. And, they have excellent vegetarian options, too! Finally, end your Williamsburg Foodie Experience with a guided coffee tasting led by a locals-only roaster at a popular café! Along the way, you’ll also get to see cool street art and author Henry Miller’s home. Once you have completed the tour, you can say you have seen everything there is to see and eaten everything there is to eat in Williamsburg.
