    Colameco has written a monumental restaurant guide for anybody serious about food in NYC. His passion and love for food, cooking and the NYC restaurant scene is evident in just the first couple pages! This book is the perfect companion to his TV and radio food talk shows.

    Good layout for finding specific categories of restaurants or bars.

    Mike being a chef gets you in the back door of places that can be of interest. He refers to other establishments the owner or chef may be tied to and how things got put together. I find it useful to understanding where I am going and what I can expect.

    Great resource for great dining

    Mike covers it all (almost). I've eaten in many of the places he recommends and he is right on the mark in calling out the cities winning eateries. Buy it and use it - you can't go wrong.
