Eating With Ziggy – Literally! All About the Hell’s Kitchen Food Crawl
October 2016 Update: I’m not doing these anymore. But as of October 2016 I got a sightseeing license and now run similar paid tours in Hells Kitchen, East Village and Brooklyn. More details here.
Since I’ve had a few people asking me about this, I thought I would put this in writing finally. A few months ago I’ve decided to offer free food oriented walks in Hell’s Kitchen. I will spare you the details of what prompted me to do it, but I assure you there are details! This is more of an eating meetup than an actual tour.
Here are the details…
What: Hell’s Kitchen Food Crawl. HK is a neighborhood in Midtown West
: Send me your dates to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Generally Thursdays and Fridays are best. We start at 3:40
Where: In front of Pigalle restaurant, 790 8th Ave. Corner of 48th street. We will not eat in Pigalle dont worry
Who: Up to 4 people. Generally best if you have a certain passion for food, culture and/or want to experience NYC through the eyes of a local. Dont do this just because its free, or with small children as it will not be fun
How long: Allow 4 hours.
Price: Zero. I’m not accepting tips. Free is FREE! You will just need to pay for the food
What will we eat and see: Some people prefer to be surprised so I will not mention the places. But out of about a dozen possibilities I’ve narrowed it down to 5 fairly diverse spots. We will also visit a few non food related places and learn a bit about the neighborhood. Worse case you will get to spend some time meeting a fun, interesting local, and I will do my best to find that individual 😉
How much will the food cost: It depends on what exactly we’ll order and what you’ll be drinking. Two of the places are casual quick sit-downs where we’ll share some dishes so some of it also depends on the number of people. Here’s a very rough estimate without drinks…
1 person – $40
2 people – $35 per
3 people – $30 per
4 people – $25 per
