Astoria: Taste of the World

Susan Birnbaum

Travel around the world as we taste our way along some of the most diverse streets of NYC.

Named for one of the richest men in New York’s history, Astoria is a living monument to its immigrant population past and present.

As we visit restaurants, cafes and food shops, we will embark on an international feast spanning four continents. Tastings will include honey-laden baklava, soft Colombian sweet bread, flaky Greek spanakopita and more.

While we discuss and taste our way through Astoria’s diverse and worldwide heritage, we’ll also explore the neighborhood’s historic connections to the Steinway piano company and the film industry (past and present), stand on a Revolutionary War site, check out “Little Egypt” and walk through NYC’s “largest department store.”

Meet at the southeast corner of 30 Ave and 31 St off the N/W 30th Ave. stop.
