How do people in cities like New York have power jobs, social lives, endless pressure--and look fabulous? How do they knock back martinis, seal million-dollar deals over gourmet dinners, and still zip up that little black dress? Well, Danielle Schupp has the answer, and now all New Yorkers can do it with her companion book to Urban Skinny.
Urban Skinny NYC takes us on a culinary trip through Manhattan, giving smart restaurant choices for power lunches, big dates, girls’ nights out, and brunch. It gives a taste of something in every neighborhood, spanning many different types of cuisine, with menus that help keep calories in check--and easy picks of 500-600 calorie meals for each restaurant (and lower calorie options for breakfast and lunch). Also included are quick tips for ordering, the low-down on favorite cocktails, and exactly how many calories are in a slice of New York pizza, a bagel with cream cheese, or a dirty water dog.
