“A New York City Culinary Experience, just in time to enjoy “The Big Apple” in Holiday Style”

After dozens of requests for a NYC food tour, from guests who participated in the ”Worth Tasting” Culinary walking tour of downtown New Haven, it’s here. What’s better than getting ready for the holidays? How about finding yourself immersed in NYC’s festive, glittering holiday lights, and delicious seasonal bevs and bites….!

Great Performances – a name you have tasted, whether at a corporate or social event, a restaurant, café or a concession in several of the city’s most prestigious cultural institutions, produces the event.
