An Insider’s Perspective: Explore the Unique Flavors of New York’s Neighborhoods

Each New York City neighborhood has a personality all its own, with treasures only known to true, local insiders. Let Rum & Blackbird Tasting Tours be your guide as we explore some of the city’s most interesting and dynamic epicurean destinations. We are deeply entrenched in our communities, with chefs, food purveyors and restaurateurs we count as friends. For you, our guests and soon-to-be friends, we pull back the curtain on some of our city’s most delicious flavors – and we’ll even let you nibble off of our plates!

Food from the inside out


Join our culinary tours to experience more than the pleasure of flavorful food on your palate by learning about the origin of the cuisine that defines our city. We incorporate food culture and historical perspective to each stop on the tour. We’ll give you substantial food history, along with tastes of empanadas, spanakopita and old-fashioned apple pie. Our founder is serious about food – she has a Masters of Food Studies, a culinary degree from the Culinary Institute of America and has worked on some of the most exhilarating culinary events nationwide. She’s just the guide you want for a New Yorker’s take on the city’s best food. Check out her bio here.

The charm of a neighborhood


Supporting “local” and “small businesses” were priorities to us well before they were marketing buzz words. Our tour stop partners are pioneers. They’re fixtures of their communities. We know many of their families because they raised their children right in their shops, on the very streets were we live, work and eat every day. From the 85-year-old Greek Bakery that remained in their original location after all others moved away to the taqueria owned and operated by a husband and wife team that devote seven days a week to their little shop, we’ll show you the real neighborhood gems before you spot them on TV.

Culinary connections in spades


We work with chefs – all day, every day. Seriously, it’s our job. From hiring top chef talent for unique curated experiences to connecting with the now successful baker who started out in their 425 square foot apartment, we count them as friends and colleagues. They invite us – and you, our new friends – to experience a food tour experience unlike any other.
