Bleecker street food tour
In the greatest food city on earth, Bleecker Street remains one of the best streets to dine. There is an endless rolodex of dining options. Eat your way around the world without leaving the span of a few blocks. You'll see countless food tours going on up and down the area. Save your money and do your own tour, with my expert help. My top ten spots below, in alphabetical order:
Amy’s Bread – You’ll find bread from this bakery at many of NY’s best restaurants. If you’re like me, you cant resist a good carb. Great for a freshly baked snack on the go.
Address: 672 9th Ave, New York, NY 10036
Faicco’s Italian Specialties – One of the undisputed, greatest sandwich shops in New York (aka the world). Open since 1900, they are the real god damn deal of Italian specialty shops. The sandwiches could feed an army, come hungry
Address: 260 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
Joe’s Pizza – Way too many of my shameful drunk nights have ended here, with too many delicious Sicilian slices in my mouth. New York City pizza royalty, evidenced by floor to ceiling pictures of celebrity visitors. Open 24 hours so you can make it your last stop of the night
Address: 7 Carmine St, New York, NY 10014
John’s of Bleecker – Just like Joe’s, John’s is long standing pizza nobility. They’ve been serving brick-oven signature pies since 1929. You can't get slices here, it's just the whole pie, so come hungry and bring friends
Address: 278 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
Magnolia Bakery – Bleecker Street houses the original location of this iconic NYC bakery, which can be found all over the world today. Indulge in freshly baked cupcakes, cookies, brownies and bars. The also sell bakery packages great for gifts or catering options.
Address: 401 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
Murray’s cheese- This famous cheese shop needs no introduction. Wall-to-wall cheese as far as the eye can see, and in operation since the early 1940’s. Grab a sandwich at their shop or head next door to the café for a full sit down experience. I knew it was love when they served my burger with a giant cup, yes cup, of melted cheese on the side.
Address: 254 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
Tacombi – Casual & fun with great Mexican food including a huge assortment of tacos and ultra fresh ceviche. Don't miss the fried fish tacos; some of the best you'll ever taste. One of my favorite date spots in NYC. Plus if the date sucks, you still have tons of tequila which ain’t too shabby any night of the week.
Address: 255 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
The Doughnut Project – small batch doughnut shop creating some truly magical combinations. Creations include pb&j, birthday cake minis, and savory-sweet everything doughnuts. If I can’t spark your interest with the words “bacon maple bar donut” then you have no sole.
Address: 10 Morton St, New York, NY 10014
The Garret – After a long day of eating, end your day with cocktails at this bar. Hidden above a Five Guys on the corner, you can look extra in-the-know as you lead your friends to the back of a fast food joint and up the steps to a killer bar. Just try to avoid eating a cheeseburger on your way out, I dare you.
Address: 2nd Floor, 296 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014
