    Dante runs this food tour himself and has smartly designed it to touch on a good range of different sweet and savoury foods that included some great Chinese dumplings, propper pickles and authentic Pastrami and bread.

    No, just the east side neighborhood. You won't find any that will cover the entire city. Take all the small tours and do it one neighborhood at a time.

    Yes, we sat at every spot but the final one. Not a taxing tour at all. I recommend it.
