Among the Zip Cars, Hybrids, and SUVs large enough to tote the Partridge Family, a vintage cab marked “Famous Fat Dave .Com” recently rolled through the streets of Brooklyn Heights. Who is Fat Dave and why is he famous? The Checker cab is part of a five borough eating tour where patrons can hop in and chow down on classic NYC treats like pickles, pizza, and cannolis.
Dave carts his hungry passengers on tasting tours lasting 2 to 6 hours, with 5 to 20 tastes depending on which package is selected. Feeling famished? Brave the “Fat Elvis Package,” consisting of the maximum 6 hours, 12 spots, and 20 tastes.
