Flatiron Food Tour

Join us on our NYC Flatiron Food Tour as we explore the trendy NYC restaurant scene - known for its Flatiron Building. Originally the neighborhood of the New York social elite and debaucherous types, today NoMad and Flatiron boast some of the top restaurants in New York City and many Michelin-starred restaurants. Let’s indulge together by eating and drinking our way through this classy neighborhood!

The Basics

3 hours 4 courses $129+ per person

Your Culinary Experience

Our 4-course progressive meal visits 4 restaurants – two appetizers, one entree, and one dessert, with a sprinkling of culinary history and stories in between.

Our NYC Flatiron Food Tour focuses on quality over quantity. Like a great sushi meal, our goal is to have you sample the highest quality ingredients – small dishes with huge flavor. We strive to shift your perspective of mole through its story of the person who made it. And yes, mole is expensive!

Our value is:

  • Our fun and knowledgeable guides
  • Curation of the experience, high quality restaurants and tasting choice
  • Stories of the restaurant owners, chefs and neighborhood
  • Facilitating interactions with the community
  • Seamless logistics (tables are reserved, guests are seated and food arrives quickly)

Since we can only include 4-courses on each experience and we partner with more than 4 awesome restaurants in the Flatiron and NoMad, our 4 courses vary based on the date and time of the experience you choose.

To experience all of our restaurants, come back again and again to taste the deliciousness and hear stories from all of our partners.
