On the Town in New York by Michael Batterberry
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Michael and Ariane Batterberry, founders of "Food and Wine" magazine, detail a journey through the streets of New York, exploring the customs in eating, drinking and entertainment of both high and low culture. They provide historical details - including quality and cost. First published in 1973 when New York seemed to be a city in decline, the original edition of saw very little hope in the city's culinary future. New York, though, was on the brink of a food revolution and a total reinvention of the American dining experience. This text redresses that miscalculation and celebrates the growth of dining out in New York.
