Foods of New York began with one hungry guy who wanted to explore the city. After experiencing the magnificence of Times Square, Todd Lefkovic sought out the smaller streets of the city, getting to know their hidden gems. He began his searches in 1977 in Greenwich Village, other locals and visitors were intrigued by his experiences and stories. He created Food of New York in 1999 to share his experiences with others. Since opening Foods of New York, he has expanded outside Greenwich Village to several other historic neighborhoods that offer delicious and unique dining experiences with six distinct food tour options.
