Foodie Couple in NYC for a week

We will be visiting NYC for a week and want to take our time walking and eating our way through the neighborhoods
Anyone care to share links to or hard copies of their favorite neighborhood/foodie walking tours
Something beyond the regular guidebook stuff would be fabulous!
Actually a recommendation for your favorite NYC Foodie Guidebook would be alright to.
I have one called New York Neighborhoods 3rd edition by Eleanor Berman that is good but the copyright is 2004. In the ever-changing NYC food scene it might as well be 1904.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

  1. Dessert Tour of the West Side

    How about RGR's self-guided Lower East Side Gustatory Tour? But note that Guss' has moved, do Pickle Guys instead:

    MMRuth's list isn't a tour - but it hits some of the good spots in the Village/Soho:

      WOW! Thank you so so much...this is terrific stuff! Just what I was looking for.
      Thank you, Thank you

    2. You might also get a huge kick out of exploring Flushing, Queens, if you'd enjoy great Sichuan food as well as food from many other regions of China -Just post your query on the Outer Boroughs board.

          Just note that Best North Dumpling has moved to 41-42 Main Street.
