Join the Downtown Alliance in Touring Lower Manhattan’s Wine Country

The Alliance for Downtown New York’s walking food tour series, Lower Manhattan Eats, continues on Saturday, October 22, 2011 with a three-hour trip featuring the neighborhood’s renowned wine and food shops.

Tour-goers will go from river to river, stopping at four Lower Manhattan vintners and restaurants – and all for one low price of $25.

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.

“Tour-goers consistently say it's like a moving party with fun information and great food,” said Liz Young, a Lower Manhattan tour guide and owner of Liz Young Tours. “The restaurants and shops welcome us with highlights from their menus, we have some laughs and enjoy the burgeoning offerings in Lower Manhattan. It's my pleasure to contextualize our place within the millennia of life in Lower Manhattan.”

As in previous seasons, the culinary adventures feature a rotating cast of Lower Manhattan’s best restaurants and food shops. Last month’s food tour featured restaurants around the Lower Manhattan Waterfront. Previous tours were themed around “Old New York”, “Taste of Ireland” for St. Patrick’s Day and “Savor the Romance” for Valentine’s Day.

WHEN:                       Saturday, October 22, 2011, from Noon to 3 PM
COST:                        $25
