    spot on!

    my goodness! this is by far the best restaurant guide i've ever used. every review was spot on, and i was very impressed with the authors' frankness. it's refreshing to have a restaurant guide that doesn't read like a list of paid advertisements from the restaurants. this is truly the first guide i've read with such honest, well-researched, and even hilarious advice, and the authors really know their stuff when it comes to food. it's too bad they only seem to have a few cities so far. i'd love to see one of these in every city in the country--in the world, even!

    unbeatable for its purpose

    The fact is, this book is the only game in town IF you want a credible guide to New Haven restaurants. It's extremely credible, extremely useful, and a good 98% of the time spot-on accurate. It will alert you to amazing food options that are found in places you might never expect, and warn you away from making potentially costly blunders. In fact it is the next best thing to having one of these highly expert food mavens living in your own apartment as your roommate. This should be required reading for ANY reident of the Have', whether gownie or townie. Did I mention that these two have a wicked sense of humor? I laughed out loud repeatedly when thumbing through. Check out the Town Pizza or Zinc reviews, for instance. But they're equally capable of getting downright lyrical when they find a worthy subject, such as Louie's, Lenny's, or Pepe's.

    Indispensible for the adventurous

    Trying new dishes, restaurants, and cuisines is a favorite hobby of mine, and The Menu: New Haven has proved indispensible in planning out and finding new destinations for my culinary adventures. The complete lists by type of food and top 30 ratings in the back are an especially handy bonus after the wonderfully thorough reviews. The Menu has even helped me discover nearby gems I would never have noticed otherwise. Bravo!

    Wow. You need this book

    I don't know what we did before 'The Menu.' I've only had my copy a month or two and it's already invaluable. The honest reviews make me chuckle, and often I find myself reading it just because I want to. Each review is like a bite-sized vignette. I've found new places to eat around town (Smith Vocational High School is a gem!), and I reach for 'The Menu' almost every day. The lists at the back are fantastic. I don't know what I did without it! Get your own copy and you'll get it. Wow. I keep a couple of copies at home as gifts (birthdays always come at me out of nowhere), and it's the best thing I've ever done. A truly useful, unisex present that doesn't need to be refrigerated! People love the book and I get all the credit just for giving it to them.
