Sietsema has a rule for eating out in New York: he looks for the strangest restaurants he can find, orders the oddest thing on the menu and tells you all about it in enthusiastic and clear prose. This wonderful guide will tell you where to find jerk chicken in the Bronx, Tibetan yak butter tea on the Upper West Side and explain why you HAVE to go to Jersey City for the best Pakistani food. I don't travel to New York without this book and neither should you.

Format: Paperback
well, I bought this book mainly becuase of the attactive title. I took a look at the recommended list of chinese restautants, there is joe's Shanghai restaurant which I think it is good as well. So I think it should be a reliable guide. It seems to me that I should have a close taste as the author does. However, I am so disapointed about the japanese restautants the author recommends in the book. Especially "the taste of tokyo" which is the most terrible american japanese restautant I have been to. They have dirty sashimi which made me run to the lady's room a few times after having dinner there. Can you trust the spanish chef can make authentic japanese food? I don't for sure. the food there is not cheap either. I have been trying more than 50 japanese restuarants in Manhattan, a lot of them in San Marcs are good. I don't know why Robert names this one. Is it just becuase it is so easy to get lost on the way to the lady's room? I love japanese food and I sincerely suggest the author should review his list.

This is a great book. It covers many resturants in the area. It provides good, accurate & quality information on these places. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a new New Yorker or long-lived resident.

Attention all book store owners...... Reserve a shelf for this book. Promote this book like it was the holy bible. This book should be in the shopping bags of all shoppers this ThanksGiving. I suggest all home makers leave a copy on the kitchen table for all guests to see. The recepies in this book are great, and the recepies should be made for every party.
