Tickets Now On Sale for "Taste of the Lower East Side"

Educator Adam Steinberg and group visit The Pickle Guys
Last month, we announced a scrumptious new walking tour interpreting the immigrant stories of the Lower East Side through food. The response has already been great--we've had messages and calls from several fans eager to try it.

Well, we're happy to announce that the wait is over: tickets are now available on our web site for the "Taste of the Lower East Side." This new tour will take place on Fridays and Saturdays only, beginning this Friday, June 24 at 1 p.m. general admission is $45 per person, $22 for Museum Members.

What can you expect from this two-hour walking and tasting tour?  You'll visit a diverse group of local purveyors and restaurants, tasting Dominican cheeses, Italian cured meats, Chinese dumplings, Asian fusion cream puffs and more. The tour opens a fascinating dialogue about the origins of some of our favorite foods, revealing that even some of the most quintessentially American fare is the product of immigrant adaptation and invention. Check out these delicious images for more inspiration--we'll see you on the Lower East Side!
