EBOOK COMMENTARY

"Alperson weaves in history with her often fascinating culinary tour."
--Publishers Weekly

"{Myra Alperson is} a guide who combines food and culture can unravel the mysteries of the city in a most satisfying way....her enthusiasm never wanes."
--Boston Globe
Publishers Weekly
New Yorkers and tourists alike will happily take this culinary tour by native New Yorker Alperson (The Food Lover's Guide to the Real New York). It's not surprising that many of New York City's most appealing and interesting restaurants happen to be in mostly ethnically diverse neighborhoods. For example, Woodside, Queens's La Chanita is a "Mexican coffee shop that serves Mexican breakfasts side-by-side with Irish breakfasts," and Sapori d'Ischia is an Italian wholesaler by day, quaint trattoria by night; the largely Caribbean-populated area around Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn is home to Gloria's In & Out; and El Barrio, in Spanish Harlem, offers all kinds of Latin cuisine, from the Puerto Rican La Fonda Boricua to the Mexican El Paso Taqueria. Alperson weaves in history with her often fascinating culinary tour; for instance, in describing The Lemon Ice King of Corona, also in Queens-a once Italian neighborhood now inhabited by Mexicans, Bangladeshi and Ecuadorians-she recommends a stop at Louis Armstrong's house, which is now a museum.

    Required for anyone spending time in New York

    Myra Alperson delivers a lot of information and a lot of excitement in this book. She makes new neighborhoods accessible, from the clear transportation information to introducing you to grocers, bakers, and restaurateurs from around the world. This is a great introduction to the diversity of New York City and to some tasty foods from many cultures.
