McNULTY'S TEA AND COFFEE, 109 Christopher Street; 242-5351. With its dark walls and shelves, burlap sacks and exotic aromas of coffee and cocoa, this is my one and only mecca for superb coffee beans. Our family mix is two-thirds Colombian supremo, one-third Yemen mocha (now $10.73 a pound).

This long-awaited revised edition includes: painstakingly detailed, up-to-the-minute coverage of all five boroughs (including expanded coverage of Brooklyn and Queens), an all-new section on the Hamptons, Ed's best-of-the-best restaurant picks, an incredibly complete directory of New York's ethnic markets (you won't know how you lived without it), and more.
The increasing demand for decaffeinated coffee is one of the more noticeable changes in eating habits. Despite that growing demand, envelopes of instant Sanka are often presented with hot water at the end of the meal, even in some of our toniest and otherwise impeccable restaurants.
