Brian Hoffman is a food blogger, actor, waiter, and lover of New York. Originally from South Florida, but born to a family of New York expats, he always dreamed of being a starving artist in the big city. After studying theater at Carnegie Mellon and moving to New York City in 2001, he realized the starving part wouldn’t cut it. So in order to never go hungry again, he founded Eat This NY, a food blog where he searches for the best of New York’s most iconic foods, and a web series of the same name that documents those searches alongside a comedic storyline. He loves showing visitors and residents alike where to get the most delicious and surprising food, and as a tour guide, he gets to do just that every day.

As the leader of our Food Cart Tours, he has fallen deeply in love with the mobile food vending scene across the country and the resourceful entrepreneurs behind these businesses. Tour attendees are always amazed at the quality of the food and the fascinating stories. He also leads tours for Urban Oyster, and he covers the street food beat for the website Midtown Lunch.
