Learn to make New York’s most iconic dishes, from bagels and brisket to cherry pie and cheesecake.

‘New York is not a city, it’s a world.’

The best way to discover a city is always through its food, venturing away from the landmarks and tourist traps and seeking out the alleyways and local joints where everyday life takes place. Nowhere is this truer than in New York, whose rich tapestry of communities and history can be experienced with each passing street. Every square foot reveals something unique about the city, and the scene is always evolving.

Author Yasmin Newman takes us on a tour across the five boroughs to celebrate the most iconic dishes in NYC. From bagels and babkas to the Reuben, classic pizza slices, hotdogs, pretzels and the world-famous New York cheesecake, Yasmin shares the recipes that feed the city, from morning to night.

With photography by Alan Benson capturing the never-ending buzz of New York life, EAT NYC is the cookbook for anyone pining for Gotham.
