As featured in the New York Daily News and Queens Courier, the Silk Road and Spice Route of Queens are two food tours in August that will recreate the culinary journeys across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia here in the most diverse community on the planet (Queens). Learn about the history of Queens and the lands where people immigrated from to call NYC home as we try authentic food from the old world right in our own backyard. Ride our trolley conveniently from midtown Manhattan on 8th Avenue between 54th and 55th Streets for a truly unique experience!
