Immigrant Foodways Tour

Step into east Williamsburg with Urban Oyster to find out how the area transformed from a Jewish neighborhood into a Puerto Rican hub over the last century. Stop along the way to talk to locals such as Virgilio Rodriguez, owner of Ramonita's Restaurant, and Isabel Gil Rosa who runs natural health remedies shop Las Gemelas. Listen to their stories while sampling five or so Latin bites including roasted pork, empanadas and stuffed plaintain fritters. Then recreate the flavors using a take-home recipe booklet that includes contributions from local shopkeepers. Reservations are required. Meet at George's Spanish and American Restaurant, 1 Graham Ave at Broadway, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
