Robert Sietsema's New Book -- wow!

Jason Perlow | Jan 4, 2001 12:45 PM

Has anyone gotten a copy of Robert Sietsema's new book, "The Food Lover's Guide to The Best Ethnic Eating in NYC" ? My Amazon copy came yesterday.

It used to be called "Good and Cheap Ethnic Eats in New York City" but it was a much smaller book (had fewer than 100 restaurants in it) but this new one has close to 500 places in it and is now more convenient to carry in a Zagat-like format. What an array of stuff!

Lots of great restaurants in here, many of which have been talked about here on Chowhound. My only qualm with it is that it focuses heavily on Queens and Brooklyn and not enough in Manhattan (maybe there's just not enough cheap eats in Manhattan, I guess.) I guess I gotta go back to the old neighborhoods more.

Jim -- you gotta add this book to the recommended list.
