I received this book from Hugo House Publishers Ltd in exchange for a review, and here it is!
Monica DiNatale is no doubt an expert on dining out in NYC. This guide will make life for first-time NYC travelers a hell lot easier. Swishing through the pages, you’ll find the name of the bar/restaurant, its location, opening hours, contact details as well as why it has been a selected feature.
All selections are numbered #1 – #365, lettered from A-Z, so theres literally a year’s worth of dining options to try. There’s no lack of variety, because most of the featured are bar/restaurant fusion where you can stay on after supper for chilling out with your buddies.
I would love to try #133 George Keeley Fine Ales and Lagers, an Irish Pub on Amsterdam Avenue in the Upper West Side. Free popcorn for all! Plus burgers with sweet potato fries. It’s a New York dream come true.
Smorgas Chef (#273) also sounds like an interesting deal. Swedish meatballs on Hanover Square? It’s Scandinavian date-night-tastic with the upscale bistro ambience.
All in all DiNatale does know how to have fun, and her picks are truly perfect for a complete NYC night-out.
