Downtown Alliance Celebrates National Burger Month with Food Tour on Saturday, May 14th
The Alliance for Downtown New York’s walking food tour series, Lower Manhattan Eats, continues on Saturday, May 14, 2011 with a three-hour trip filled with burger tastings in Lower Manhattan.
Tour-goers will weave through the district’s narrow streets, stopping at five Lower Manhattan restaurants, for various types of burgers (and sides and drinks!), all for one low price of $25. Participating restaurants will be announced before the event.
This year’s excursions, which are held monthly, are led by Liz Young, owner of Liz Young Tours and a certified culinary professional and licensed city tour guide. She’s been leading such tours in New York City neighborhoods since 2003, and has been a fixture in the city's culinary scene since 1995.
As in previous seasons, the culinary adventures feature a rotating cast of Lower Manhattan’s best restaurants. The March 12th tour includes visits to Ulysses Folk House and The Bailey Pub and Brasserie, with other venues to be announced.
This is the third food tour of the season. March’s “Taste or Ireland” and February’s “Savor the Romance” food tours both sold out.
WHEN: Saturday, May 14, 2011, from Noon to 3 PM
WHERE: Stops throughout Lower Manhattan
