Editorial Reviews

From the Author

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.

From the Back Cover

Everyone knows that New York is one of the best places in the whole world to eat and to try all different types of foods. Sixth-grader David Pines takes us on a food tour of his favorite dishes in New York City

While the list includes traditional "kids menu" items like the best French fries (at Pommes Frites) and macaroni & cheese (at S'MAC), David also encourages readers to try more sophisticated foods they might not have eaten before.

David not only gives the kid's-eye view on the specific flavors that make each dish a winner -- he also describes the scene and whether the restaurant is kid-friendly. David also provides insightful insider tips for getting the most out of your meal.

David's mouth-watering descriptions will have you craving everything from paella to popovers. Readers lucky enough to live in the New York area will want to make a point of checking out all the spots on his list. Visitors to NYC -- this is one guidebook you won't want to leave home without!

More About the Author

Born and raised (so far) in New York City, eighth grader David Pines loves to surf -- restaurant guides, that is. But, he never found a guide or website that captures all the best spots for kids. That's when David decided to create his own guide to the ever-exciting and ever-changing New York restaurant scene. Along with various members of his family, David went on food hunts throughout the City to find the very best dishes for kids. The results are all here, and David is excited to share his findings with you.

In addition to participating in food hunts, David burns thousands of calories a week playing tennis, baseball and/or soccer. He is also an avid skier who can find the best lunch spots at any mountain resort.

There is nothing harder than finding the "perfect" restaurant to take kids. Now, struggle no more--give them this book and tell them to pick one. David is smart, witty and knows his food! Expect to see this kid on the food and travel channels soon. Give a copy to every kid who will be visiting or lives in New York--and enjoy!

Although this book is geared towards kid's, the restaurants are perfect for parents also. I recently visited three restaurants from this guide with my son and family visiting from Ireland. We wanted to find kid-friendly restaurants, but we also wanted great food. Every restaurant lived up to the reviews. As a parent, I highly recommend this guide.

Helpful and resourceful are two ways to describe this excellent piece of literature. It is a must have when deciding which places to eat in New York City, and is a great book to read, helping you explore other foods from around the world. Without a doubt, this book is a necessity in any home in New York City with children or even adults trying to expand their taste buds beyond the normal cuisine. I would recommend this book for people to buy for children as great birthday present or even adults who want to have some fun while visiting New York City.
