Hi! My name is David Pines. I am a 12 year-old boy who loves to eat, travel and play sports. I was inspired to write Pines Picks: A Kid's Guide to the Best Things to Eat and Drink in New York City because I am always getting asked to describe my favorite dishes and those descriptions always make people hungry.
So now, with the help of my family, who took me on food hunts all over the five boroughs, I wrote a helpful guide to the best places to eat in NYC. It is the only current NYC food guide written from a kid's perspective, and the only guide that really says where to get the best of a particular dish in New York City.
I hope you enjoy it.
