Hidden in plain sight on Yorkville’s side streets are unique bars, restaurants and niche shops, some of them among Manhattan’s most celebrated and alluring. And on June 21, a few of these neighborhood gems will open their doors for an exclusive tour of the East 80s.

The event, Sidewalk: Yorkville, will begin at Little Frog, where attendees will be served a glass of wine and have a chance to chat with the charming French bistro’s owner, Francois Latapie. Then, side street expert Betsy Polivy of Sideways.nyc will escort the group from one great small business to the next.

You will hear how the owner of Miss Madeleine’s was finally able to bring his entire family to the city to open his own bakery; discover what has made Maz Mezcal a neighborhood staple since the early ‘70s; learn the story behind Sutton Clocks from the shop’s second-generation horologist; and get the chance to peruse, taste and observe within four other commercial treasures.

The tour ends with a beer and stories about the neighborhood at Ryan’s Daughter, a bar in operation since Prohibition.

Limited space is available. Reserve yours by visiting www.yorkvilletour.eventbrite.com or call Molly at 212-868-0190
