|Hand me the bread|
By Andy Rooney
WHILE I don’t have an exact number, I estimate from sort of counting them in the telephone book that there are about 24,000 restaurants in New York City. I’ve eaten in several hundred of them, and the good ones outnumber the fair or poor ones. The best restaurants go on and on and get better year after year; the bad ones don’t last a year. There are a few good restaurants in every city in the United States, but there are hundreds of them in New York.
Eating out is a popular hobby with New Yorkers. I know this because every Wednesday in the New York Times, they devote an entire section to food and in it they often review restaurants.
