The Daily Shortlist September 4
Junot Diaz stops by Barnes & Noble (33 E 17th St) to read from his recent novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which has already won the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award and Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Taking burgers to the next level, New York Burger Co. builds their burgers with high quality ingredients, delivering a better take on a classic. With a casual American and dim sum bar menu, the food is an excellent complement to the over 100 wines available by the glass from all the major wine-making countries in the world. With one of the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had along with the hot chocolate, City Bakery makes all sorts of high-end food that won’t send you to the poor house.
