MY TAKE:
I don't live in New York, but I thought this would be a good read since I do like the idea of going to New York.

365 Guide New York City features different New York restaurants and bars that have great food and drink deals.

I was surprised to find that the book did not have pictures or a colorful layout. I expected the book to look like travel guide books. Of course, I've read some guide books which, like this one, didn't have pictures, but I think adding pictures would have made this book better and more interesting.

There were also instances wherein for restaurants with more than one location, the entire entry was repeated, with only the heading and location changed. I would have preferred if the main entry just had the two or three locations or if the different locations had different content.

That said, the book covers the important things for each establishment, that is: time and details of the deals, location, hours, contact details, recommendations and observations and extras.

Thanks to NetGalley and Hugo House Publishers, Ltd. for the e-ARC.

THE GOOD:

  1. It covers the important stuff for each restaurant and bar.
  2. It has a section on cheaper foods like pizzas, hot dogs and desserts.
  3. There are indexes which allow you to search the restaurants and bars by type, alphabetically, or by area.

THE BAD:

  1. There are no pictures.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Even if you don't think you like banana pudding, give theirs a try.
READ IT IF:

  1. You like good deals.
  2. You live in or will be visiting New York.
  3. You don't mind it if guide books don't have pictures.
