The Signature Shopping & Tasting Tour
Arthur Avenue is New York's best neighborhood of family-run food shops that carry on old-world traditions. Our Shopping & Tasting Tour encapsulates the classic Arthur Avenue experience. that people have been enjoying for decades.
We meet in front of the Arthur Avenue Retail Market to begin exploring the shops. You'll find out where to find the best bread, the freshest mozzarella, the cannoli which are filled to order, and see exactly how the sausage is made. This is a fully sensory experience paired with conversations with the shop owners who keep these food traditions alive.
We'll taste bites along the way, then sit down for lunch at Mario's, open since 1919, for an Italian American feast.

WE'VE BEEN FEATURED IN:
Our family has been on Arthur Avenue since 1918
First a baccalà store, then a butcher shop...
Albino and Grazia Oteri immigrated from Naples and opened their baccalà shop in 1918. In the 1950s their son John turned it into a butcher shop which was featured in the Academy Award winning film "Marty" starring Ernest Borgnine.
In 2012 Danielle Oteri and her husband Christian Galliani began hosting tours that mirrored their own weekly shopping trips to the neighborhood and Arthur Avenue Food Tours was born.
