Half way through we stop at a market and pick up food for a picnic at Washington Square Park. Your food isn't included in the cost of the tour so that you can buy as much, and as gourmet, food as you'd like. If it's raining we stop at Bar Sardine which is a small restaurant widely believed to have the best burger in New York.
Note: The picnic is not included in the price of the tour. We stop along the way to buy picnic goodies so you can choose what you'd like or even bring a pre-packed lunch. Also, we stop at about 1:30 so it's best to have had something to eat before we start.
