EAT THIS NEW YORK is the story of two best friends' struggle to open a restaurant in the food capital of the world. As Billy Phelps and John McCormick suffer through financial crisis, the loss of their chef, and a crumbling relationship, the filmmakers turn the camera on New York City's legendary restaurateurs who prove that dreams can come true.

Throughout the movie, New York City's renowned restaurateurs and chefs reflect on the challenges of opening and running a restaurant. Like the chorus of a Greek play, Daniel Boulud, Sirio Maccioni, Keith McNally, Drew Nieporent, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and Danny Meyer act as a foil to the idealistic entrepreneurs.

Format:DVD
Another great food documentary release from First Run Features - with SUPER bonus footage

As the latest addition to it's ongoing series of "Food documentaries", First Run Features is going back a few years and released this 2004 film on New York Restaurants by Director Andrew Rossi. In addition to his film last year on The New York Times - titled "Page One" - that I loved, Rossi made "Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven" which I've also reviewed here on Amazon. If you saw either of these - especially "Le Cirque", you'll want to see this one, especially for the bonuses. In fact you'll see a few interview clips with Le Cirque head honco Sirio Macconi here that were also in "Le Cirque".

The core story is watching two young guys - Billy and John - try to open a casual café in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY. This is on the border of both the Orthodox Jewish and Hispanic neighborhoods and is a real ethnic blend. The dilapidated building soon to become MOTO, Inc., - was purchased by the guys in 2001. Rossi follows their construction over nearly 2 years to opening night. Along the way he interviews many other biggies in the NYC restaurant scene: Danny Meyer, Tim Zagat, Ruth Reichl, and Daniel Boulud.

The film lasts 77 minutes but First Run has included over TWO HOURS of Rossi's interviews. This is the icing on the cake (pun definitely intended!).

Warning: Don't watch these DVDs on an empty stomach!

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
