The insider's food guide to New York City--from trusted New York food expert and TV/radio host Michael Colameco
New York is the food capital of the United States, with an incredibly rich and diverse dining scene that boasts everything from four-star French restaurants, casual neighborhood bistros, and ethnic restaurants from every corner of the world to corner bakeries, pastry shops, and much more.
Now Mike Colameco, the host of PBS's popular Colameco's Food Show and WOR-Radio's "Food Talk", helps you make sense of this dizzying array of choices. He draws on his experience as a chef and New York resident to offer in-depth reviews of his favorite eating options, from high-end restaurants to cheap takeout counters and beyond. His work has given him unprecedented access to the city's chefs and kitchens, allowing him to tell you things others can't. He offers inside information about different establishments, giving a detailed and sometimes irreverent sense of the food and the people behind them.

I am a huge fan of Mike Colameco and especially of Food Talk, so there is no way I couldn't love the book. His opinions on restaurants make a difference. I only wish more restaurants could be included. I know it is not intended to be a Zagat-type guide, but many of my favorites (and possibly would-be favorites) are not reviewed. I like the style of the reviews and the detail he includes. Will he be doing a book signing in Boston? L. A.0 of 0 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
