Urban Appetites: Food & Culture in Nineteenth-Century New York

New York City has been a culinary capital of the world for so long it might seem like it was built on the backs of restaurateurs and diners. As Cindy Lobel explores in her new book Urban Appetites, however, the Big Apple’s rise to gastronomic prominence began with the humble markets of a small seaport city. From coffee shops to diners to haute cuisine, Lobel traces the arc of New York City’s evolution, revealing how food played a role in the city’s politics, urban planning, public health and more.​
