Awesome food tour and sight-seeing

We did the food tour yesterday with Curt, who was charming, funny, and knowledgeable about the food we were served, as well as the neighborhoods we ventured into to. The tour is a wonderful way to experience the part of Manhattan.

Just the East Side but more than a standard tourist event, he can also provide ideas about other areas of the city. I have taken two different tours with him, both educational and fun
