New York Eats (More), by Ed Levine

McNulty's has been doing the same thing for nearly one hundred years: selling fresh, high-quality coffees and teas in an old-fashioned setting replete with tin ceilings and wooden slat floors and bins.

A lifelong nosher with an insatiable taste for adventure, Ed Levine has turned his quirky passion into a New York institution, tirelessly seeking out the freshest, most delicious, best-priced scallion pancake, pork sausage, smoked mozzerella, foie gras, Jamaican jerk chicken, key lime pie, cappuccino-brownie ice cream, strawberry lemonade, and just about everything else the city has to offer. 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.
