EATING OUT IN NEW YORK

New Yorkers take their restaurants very seriously - not surprising given that many New York apartments have tiny kitchens, if they have one at all.

Of course, like everything American, big is best and in the case of restaurants big doesn't necessarily refer to size but to the reputation of the chefs, many of whom are now celebrities in their own right. In fact many have become so highly regarded that getting into their establishments is a hard task. If your heart is set on a meal at a trendy or landmark New York restaurant, book well ahead to ensure a table.
