A Nice Little Book Apr 19, 2005
I read this book cover to cover in one night. As a former New Yorker, it made me aware of some spots I'll be sure to try next time I'm in town. Mr. Fleischmann's style of writing is easy to read and fun at that.
You have to appreciate it from the point that this is not a Zagat or Fodors. It is one writers view of on a very particular group of dining spots, especially those on the Upper West Side.
A good read and a great gift for your friends in NY.
