How does this work?
Your tour guide will meet you at the first location and will guide you through the whole experience, walking from stop to stop. All locations and menu items are curated in advance, so your only job is to show up, have a great time and enjoy all the food and drinks. Are you hungry yet?! Choose a date from the calendar, and book online in just a few steps.
I bought a gift certificate for the Taste of Downtown Jersey City Food Tour. Can it be used for any of the above tours?
Yes, please call 551-233-9553 or email us for booking. The only one it will not apply to is the Booze n Bites Tour.
Wait, so do I need a group to book? Who is this tour made for?
Anyone can sign up for a tour! The minimum number of registered guests must total 4 or more, which can consist of a mix of individuals, couples, or groups. We keep the experience intimate so tours cap at 16 people. (Sorry, but no pets!) Kids are welcomed but we find most people prefer leaving them with a sitter! Perfect for first-time tour goers, and both locals and visitors alike. Jersey City is constantly changing. Even if you’ve taken this tour before, no 2 tours are the same! Come back and see where we’re touring now.
Do we tip at each restaurant?
Nope! Payment and tips to each restaurant is taken care of by us. Much like the rest of the hospitality industry, if you feel like your tour guide did a great job, the standard in the industry is 15-20%. Tips are not required, but they are very much appreciated.
How much food can we expect? What about alcohol pairings? What if I don't drink?
We recommend having a light breakfast! By the time we’ve tasted our way through 4 locations, there will not be a need for dinner after. There are generally 3 drink pairings on every tour and will usually be a mix of select wines, cocktails or beers. Alcohol can be substituted for non-alcoholic beverages.

“Such a fun time! Did the tour in Jersey City with a group of girlfriends and loved it. You get a VIP experience with reserved spaces, face time with owners and chefs, and amazing menu/drink pairings. As someone who frequents Jersey City for the bar scene, I was introduced to a whole new side of the food scene and am so excited to come back to these places. Great for a group of friends or corporate event!!”
