More About New York in a Dozen Dishes by Robert Sietsema
 
 
 
Overview
Join New York City s most intrepid eater Robert Sietsema, pioneer of outer-boroughs dining in an urban adventure like none other. Through essays on the city s defining dishes, some familiar, others obscure, Robert paints a portrait of New York s food landscape past and present, and shares a life spent uncovering the delicious foods of the five boroughs.

Gobble up a century of New York pizza, from the coal-fired pies of a thriving Little Italy to the slice joints of a burgeoning rock n roll East Village. Discover Katz s Delicatessen as Robert did, on a foray into the hardscrabble Lower East Side of the 1970s. Take Robert s hand and he ll bring you through the Mexican taquerias of Bushwick with their papalo leaves and piled-high sandwiches then visit the underground Senegalese dining scene hidden in plain sight in 1990s Times Square. See the evolution of New York fried chicken from Harlem s spare, ancient style to the battered-and-brined birds of hipster Brooklyn. Hunt with Robert for Hangtown fry and a vanishing Chinese-American cuisine, and follow him as he ferrets out the city s most elusive foods, including the Ecuadorian guinea pig.
