About This Book

Acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse reveals his personal guide to the best eating, drinking, and hospitality the city has to offer. A perfect introduction to New York’s food world for New Yorkers and tourists alike. There are many guides to New York restaurants, but this is the first one by Alain Ducasse, the critically acclaimed French chef and multiple-time winner of three Michelin stars in two different cities. From Brooklyn’s hippest new restaurants to Manhattan’s best street vendor hot dogs, Ducasse reveals his personal selections of Gotham’s best culinary destinations. This intimate hardcover comes with a foldout map that is perfect for popping into hand luggage or tucking into a coat pocket. This compact guide focuses primarily on Manhattan and Brooklyn, revealing Ducasse’s favorite spots, special finds, and gourmet delights. It captures New York’s globally inspired palette of flavors and aromas that blend together into its own unique food culture producing some of the world’s best and most innovative restaurants. From bistros, gelaterias, and bakeries to old-fashioned "appetizing" delicatessens, greenmarket stands, and five-star restaurants, any culinary location that is special to New York and at the top of its game, is included in Ducasse’s guide.

In this small but elegantly designed book that revolves largely around Manhattan and Brooklyn, he describes his favorite restaurants, markets, kitchenware stores, bakeries, ice cream shops, cocktail bars, coffeehouses, food trucks, street vendors and even bookstores that specialize in new and out-of-print culinary titles. . . Even if you think you know New York's culinary scene well, readers should find many pleasant surprises here."
