There were several nominations for OBT in the February COTM nominations thread, but a couple of posters also expressed that they found O'Neill's previous "New York Cookbook" uninspiring. I imagine this book will come up in future nominations threads, so thought it might be a good idea to get some reports out there so we can see whether this book is worthy of a future COTM.
