Do you want help planning an incredible New York City food trip? Let us do the heavy lifting!
If you're researching where to eat on your next trip to New York, you are probably in the midst of information overload. Maybe you’ve got a crazy-filled Google map of restaurants to hit, or a zillion saved links to articles touting this bagel shop or that new food hall. It’s extremely time-consuming, head-spinning research to pare down and fit into your limited time in the city. And there’s always the risk of winding up at an overpriced mediocre tourist trap. (We know, because we have been in this boat countless times whenever we plan our own food trips!)
Wouldn't it be better if a knowledgeable, trusted local friend just sent you a detailed email telling you where you need to eat so you don’t have to think about it? Or if you had a detailed guide in your hand (or on your phone) telling you where to go next?
That can be us! We at EYW have called various parts of New York City home for nearly 20 years, and we've made it our business to eat and explore our way through it—high end to low end, traditional to trendy. (We even offer in-person group food tours in our own delicious Queens 'hood.) When I first moved here in 2000, I obsessively pored over restaurant guides and checked off the ones I went to. Before writing for The New York Times, Budget Travel, Men's Journal and other national pubs, I contributed to some of those NYC food guides, like Zagat and Shecky's.
We can save you from those countless hours of dining research. We’re here to help you get the most out of NYC’s eats, so you can walk around this city like a local. Here’s how.
We now offer:
• downloadable one-day NYC eating itineraries
• custom multiday food-focused itineraries for NYC
• guided and self-guided Queens food tours
Use one or multiple, follow them by the T or build upon 'em yourself. We give lots of flexibility within each downloadable itinerary, tons of tasty insider tips for meals and snacks, and even plenty of suggestions for what to do when you're not eating. Each one-day itinerary is a downloadable PDF file viewable on your smartphone or PC/Mac. Custom multiday itineraries are emailed to you as a document following a series of questions, so we know exactly what your priorities are. (Please email us at info AT eatyourworld.com.)

Classic NYC Food Itinerary
You want: The best hits of classic NYC cuisine in one day. From breakfast to dinner and late-night drinks, we've got you covered with the iconic New York foods and drinks you've just GOT to try, plus nearby activity suggestions to fill the time between meals. 18 pages; Manhattan only.
Kid-Friendly NYC Food Itinerary
You want: an incredible day of eating and exploring that’s fun for the whole family. Bringing the kids doesn't mean you have to eat only at restaurants with chicken fingers! We are a family of 4 who believes kids can eat almost anywhere, but we know how different families are, so we provide tons of options for this day, spanning the outwardly kid-catering to the high-end but kid-friendly—plus nearby fun activities and snacking opportunities. Bonus content: lots of backup off-itinerary ideas for what/where to eat when plans fail, the kids are starving, and you need something fast + tasty (it happens!). 20 pages; Manhattan only.
Jackson Heights Self-Guided Food Tour
You want: To get off the beaten path for an up-close look (and taste) of one of NYC's most diverse neighborhoods. For many years, we've given food tours of our Queens neighborhood, Jackson Heights, offering tastes from many of the countries represented here. We love our 'hood (and the food!), and want to introduce it to as many people as possible, so we developed this self-guided version for those who can't make an in-person tour ... or prefer to taste on their own time. Note: This is the same three-hour food tour we give in person, adapted for self-guidance. Recommended for small groups. 18 pages.
