Amazon.com Review

At once a guidebook and a celebration of New York's greatest eating experiences, this enthusiastic book searches the boroughs of the Big Apple for more than 300 take-out places, from hot doughnuts to mozzarella, pad thai to pasta. Recipes, interviews, profiles and digressions make this a lavish gustatory read. The 19 sections on different food categories--appetizers, smoked fish, wine, and so on--are each broken down by neighborhood, and the descriptions of each restaurant or shop include information on deliveries, credit cards, catering and just about anything else that might be useful to know.

From Publishers Weekly

New York-based writer Levine has eaten his way through nearly every byway of that metropolis, and the result is a comprehensive food shopper's guide to the city. The author makes his gargantuan subject digestible by breaking it into bite-size categories such as smoked fish, pasta and gourmet takeout. Purveyors are listed by neighborhoods (14 in all), and each entry scrupulously details the establishment's must-eats and missablesplease stet . Highlights include the secret addresses for what he calls "New York's great eating experiences," from the city's supreme egg cream to its best bagel. Levine's palate is refreshingly democratic: acmes of his gustatory wanderings run from the humble (40-cent hot donuts at Georgie's Pastry Shop on West 125th Street) to the haute (a gossamer mozzarella at DiLuca Dairy). Interviews with Gotham's unsung culinary heroes, as well as its recipes, are sprinkled liberally throughout. But what really distinguishes this odyssey from other encyclopedias of the edible is Levine's enthusiasm: "I regard every walk from a bus or subway as an opportunity for food adventure."
