More About the Author

Sherri Eisenberg has been a travel and food writer for 14 years. A former editor at Travel Holiday magazine and Brides magazine, she has written for numerous other magazines (including Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, and Budget Travel) and newspapers (including The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, and The Baltimore Sun).

She currently lives in Brooklyn Heights with her husband Chris and, while he admittedly had to drag her out of Manhattan kicking and screaming (in a scene reminiscent of those Miranda-and-Steve moments in Sex and the City) she quickly fell in love with the borough and its exciting restaurant scene.

Eisenberg travels frequently but, no matter where she is in the world, she's convinced the food is better in her hometown of New York City--except for, maybe, in Paris. That she'll concede.

Format: Paperback
With so much great food in Brooklyn, this book is an essential tool. The index is smartly organized so that you can search by neighborhood, cuisine, or restaurant name. The foodie faves section will list places that are well known to many, but lesser known gems are covered as well. Ideal for new Brooklynites, visitors, and New Yorkers from other boroughs who need some direction. Love it!

The Brooklyn food scene--not only restaurants, but also markets, food events and festivals, and specialty shops--has truly exploded in the past decade. As a resident and food lover, I find it hard sometimes to keep up, and even harder to distinguish between mere hype and earned accolades. Sherri Eisenberg's Food Lovers' Guide to Brooklyn is an invaluable resource for planning meals out or food-related excursions. Broken down by neighborhood, the book includes maps, reviews, and highlights for each listing. It has certainly encouraged me to explore further into the borough than I have gone before...and my stomach has been amply rewarded. YUM!

Format: Paperback
This is a must-have for anyone looking for a fun guide to eating in Brooklyn. It has a lot of the favorites, but also things you wouldn't expect. Note, this is not a review book - it doesn't include every place under the sun, just ones the author thinks are worthy of seeking out. The book is well organized and easy to use, and also small enough to be portable. This makes a great gift for anyone who loves to explore new places!

The wife is mad at me, so this book did its job... :-) Now we have hundreds of more places to eat at when we make our annual pilgrimage to NYC, meaning thousands of more tasty calories to cram into our bodies. Good thing we walk so much when we're there. Highly highly highly recommended for folks who want to cram thousands of more tasty calories into their bodies when in NYC. It also lists directions from subways, and, with its small size, it fits conveniently into her purse, so she can whip it out if we need to should my direction sense go south...
