Marvelous Manhattan: Stories of the Restaurants, Bars, and Shops That Make This City Special (Hardcover)
New York might include Broadway, Times Square, and even the Empire State Building, but the true lifeblood of the city dwells within its long-notorious, trendsetting epicenters. Places like Lou di Palo's in Little Italy, where patrons entangle in an interesting discussion, imbibing in a variety of cheese along the way. Or Raoul's in Soho, where one can devour a classic steak-frites with downtown's finest. Or at Minton's Playhouse in Harlem, the birthplace of bebop. Or, even more so, Russ & Daughters—the go-to vendor for the Big Apple's freshest lox and bagels since 1914. From a local's perspective, author Reggie Nadelson celebrates her beloved city and all her iconic spots. A part guidebook, part historical account, part memoriam, Marvelous Manhattan is a captivating, timely read for those who dwell in or admire the city, with a glimpse.
