Editorial Reviews Review

New York, New York, it's an edible town. The soul food's up and the knishes are down. In New York Eats (More), Ed Levine tells where to find the best of both, and of every other gustatory possibility this melting-pot city has to offer.

In this update of the original New York Eats (1992), Levine adds 200 entries. In all, he covers stores in 15 neighborhoods in the five boroughs, spanning 30 ethnic groups.

Fair warning: Look up one entry and an hour later, you will still be reading. Levine's passion, sometimes controversial opinions, and ardent style are utterly compelling. Present and former New Yorkers can kiss off half a day every time they get near this book. And Levine now shares his e-mail address, so you can argue back and share your own favorites.

Die-hard ethnic foodies may notice one shortcoming in New York Eats (More). Some identities within major ethnic groups, such as Thai in the Asian entries, are missing. This may have happened because Levine does not cover restaurants. When this shortcoming is remedied, as it no doubt will be in a future edition, this will be the ultimate, as well as the most exciting, New York food guide.--Dana Jacobi


"The best-researched guidebook of any kind I've ever read about New York City." --Liz Logan, The New York Times

"A real buy..Energetic, unfailingly accurate." --The Village Voice

"If you like to cook, get a cookbook, but if you just like to eat and let someone else do the cooking, New York Eats is the book for you." --Ed Koch

"Reading Ed Levine's book is like having an opinionated and passionate fresser [food lover] as a friend who chares his best secrets with you." --Jane and Michael Stern, authors of Roadfood & Goodfood

Format: Paperback
My copy of the previous edition of this book is dog-eared and worn because I use it so much as a guide, reference and and entertainment. Levine knows New York, food, and people. He knows his stuff but he's not snooty about it. He's as much at home writing about Gray's Papaya hot dogs as he is about the finest wines

Format: Paperback
Ed Levine is the host of a funny and very informative local New York restaurant and food review show called "New York Eats". I have repeatly sent in emails hoping to get a free copy of his book but to no avail. Alas I recently bought this book and it has helped me on many occasions. From finding the best pizza in NYC to the best take out fois gras. A indispensable gift for someone living in New York City and surrounding areas and even better for someone about to visit and they want to know where to get the best food in the best city on earth.
