NYC restaurants are the lifeblood and the backbone of our vibrant, diverse, exciting metropolis. But right now, their future looks uncertain. That’s why this book exists: to support New York City’s finest restaurants and their hard-working teams through one of the most powerful, most unifying languages on Earth: recipes. Inside are more than 45 easy, pantry-friendly recipes from NYC’s best restaurants, including Olmsted, Momofuku, King, Charlie Bird, Llama Inn, the NoMad, and more.
