Review

"Eleanor Berman knows her stuff . . . you can't go wrong with this guide."
--Pucci Meyer, Travel Editor, New York Post

From the Back Cover

If ordering takeout pizza is not your idea of an adventurous ethnic dining experience, then visit one of New York City's incredible ethnic neighborhoods.
Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs are steeped in history and tradition, a melting pot of generations of immigrant cultures and regional foods. Award-winning travel writer and longtime New Yorker Eleanor Berman leads you on safe and interesting walking, shopping, and eating tours through the City's diverse neighborhoods. Sample bibimbap in Flushing and sauerbraten in the Upper East Side. Shop for Polish groceries in Greenport and Italian delicacies in the Bronx. Visit Chinese herbalists in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. Along the way learn about each neighborhood's history, customs, and architecture.
Berman's mouth-watering descriptions of various cuisines, tips on what to order, specific directions, and helpful maps will have you navigating like a native through twenty neighborhoods such as:
 Brighton Beach, where you'll find Russian cafes and nightclubs,
sidewalk vendors, and the world-famous Cyclone at Coney Island.
Astoria, where tavernas serve up Greek dishes, Czech and Slovak
traditions are preserved, and a museum celebrates film and television.
Harlem, where you can savor soul food, West Indian specialties, and Cajun-Creole cuisine.
So walk a little, nosh a little, and immerse yourself in the ethnic New York City you never knew.

If you're the type of person who would rather spend money on outstanding food rather than plays and shopping, this book is for you. This tome will take you to the best food in the world.
The coolest part is that you will be walking through "non-tourista" sections of New York that most long time New Yorkers don't know exist!
You can't go wrong with this book. We've used it the last three visits to New York and are still amazed at what we continue to discover!

I found this book at the library many years ago and decided to buy it since I kept getting it again & again. Some of the info are now outdated but it's still a valuable resource if you want to explore different ethnic area of the city.

This book was not helpful. I wish I had paid attention to the publication date. Out of date information. Will give the book away
