'Belly Up to the Bar' is a guide to eating at the bar in Manhattan's top 101 restaurants (as rated by Zagat 2008 and the 'Michelin Guide to New York City's Restaurants, ' 2008).

Editorial Reviews

planeteyetraveler.com
Belly Up to the Bar is the quintessential guide to eating at the bars in 101 of New York City's top restaurants as rated by Zagat's 2008 survey. All of them are rated 23 or higher as well as being listed in the 2008 Michelin Guide. It's apparent that the author visited and revisted every restaurant in this book firsthand to evaluate their noise level, atmosphere, diner-friendliness, crowd, and wait time for each of her experiences.
