The wonderful world of New York restaurants Paperback – 1964
by Mary Ford (Author)
120 page 5 1/4"x7 1/4" illustrated softcover booklet on New York restaurants published by Coleman-Morrow, Inc. in 1963-Stated Fourth Printing.
Paperback: 120 pages
Publisher: Coleman-Morrow (1964)
Like the bureau of missing persons, the New York State Restaurant Association is asked to track lost relatives.
It also is asking for routine restaurant information by visitors as well as New Yorkers. But the inquiries about missing persons come just as regularly, said John C. Morrow, a NYSRA official.
But information about restaurants is easier to come by, Morrow added. The association tries to answer as many questions as it can from callers who just want to know where to eat. Many ask for the name of the best Italian or French or Chinese restaurant in town.
Other want prices or addresses. A booklet for publication answers many such questions. All of the nearly 300 restaurants described in "The Wonderful World of New York Restaurants" will be listed by location.
The booklet also contains a map of Manhattan from 110th Street to the Battery; articles on dining out; information about entertainment, dancing, air conditioning, closing days, credit cards, portions and prices, and a list in five languages of basic foods.
Prices are explained with a starred system indicating inexpensive, moderate, high and expensive. But a foreword points out that any such rating is based on availability, not personal opinion or the state of any diner's bank account.
It reminds visitors who consider a $2.95 full course dinner expensive that New York restaurants pay the highest rent, wages, taxes and license fees of any restaurants in the world. Many also are famous for their high percentage of top quality, hard-to-get ingredients.
The booklet lists many inexpensive restaurants, but a visitor who wants to eat at famous ones that cater to celebrities would do well to heed a sign I saw recently on a shop window. It said: "Keep 14th Street Green, Bring Money".
Cover is loose from spine but attached along back cover. Pages are white and are still attached. Slight rounding to corners.
