This may be significant, but hardly antique or collectible, so this is the right thread. Just picked up the Sterns' Roadfood for $5 in a used book store. But it's a revised edition (2011) and I am pretty sure I read the original 1978 version from a library, so this would have a lot of entries which are new to me, and in the NYC section I see places that weren't around in '78.

I just picked up Eat Something from the guy who started Wise Sons deli here in SF.  It's part cookbook and part snarky/loving remembrances of holidays, etc. (in the spirit of Bar Mitzvah Disco).  There's a cocktail that involves prunes soaked in gin, so I've got a batch going in the fridge and will report back.  I'm also looking forward to trying the Fall Vegetable Hash around Rosh Hashanah time and the Matzoquiles come Passover.

Who is worse, that boss or the one who would take the book you gave him, neatly cut out the front page you had inscribed to him and give it to a coworker a few years later?

This surprised me by arriving today. Must have been one of those late night impulse purchases. On the upside, it was priced at $1.50. On the downside, it’s in French. Nice pictures though.
