The November Issue


In case you hadn’t seen it around town, the next issue of Edible Manhattan is now out in restaurants, food stores and wine shops–and right here online–and as ever we’re proud of not just what’s inside, but also who. We peek into New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik’s kitchen (and his thank you note from Alice Waters), follow Southern food guru John T.

Edge through Koreatown for fried chicken, check in on chef Eric Ripert’s leftovers, which go to City Harvest, and hear from road food experts Jane and Michael Stern on a new book about cherishing the deli. Not to mention stories about City Bakery–and their famed pretzel croissants–perfect pre-made lard pie crusts and the freshest fish to be found in the city.
