Mike Colameco's Food Lover's Guide to New York City by Mike Colameco

The insider's food guide to New York City-from trusted New York food expert and TV/radio host Michael Colameco

New York is the food capital of the United States, with an incredibly rich and diverse dining scene that boasts everything from four-star French restaurants, casual neighborhood bistros, and ethnic restaurants from every corner of the world to corner bakeries, pastry shops, and much more.

Now Mike Colameco, the host of PBS's popular Colameco's Food Show and WOR-Radio's "Food Talk", helps you make sense of this dizzying array of choices. He draws on his experience as a chef and New York resident to offer in-depth reviews of his favorite eating options, from high-end restaurants to cheap takeout counters and beyond. His work has given him unprecedented access to the city's chefs and kitchens, allowing him to tell you things others can't. He offers inside information about different establishments, giving a detailed and sometimes irreverent sense of the food and the people behind them.

  • Goes beyond ratings-centered guides to offer detailed, opinionated reviews by an experienced chef and longtime New Yorker
  • Recommends restaurants, bakers, butchers, chocolatiers, cheese stores, fishmongers, pastry shops, wine merchants, and more
  • Entries include basic facts, contact information, and a thoughtful, personal review
  • Includes choices in every price range and neighborhood, from Tribeca to Harlem

Whether you're visiting for a weekend or have lived in New York for years, this guide is your #1 go-to source for the best food the city has to offer.

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.

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.

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.
