For book lovers and food lovers, I recommend spending an afternoon at Kitchen Arts and Letters, at 94th and Lexington. They have an incredible selection of food writing and cookbooks (contemporary and rare), and they can also find out of print books for you. I can spend hours here. It’s my favorite store in New York City.


David Chang is the executive chef and owner of the Momofuku restaurants. He has won several awards for his cuisine and was named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” in 2010. The first issue of his quarterly print journal Lucky Peach, came out in the summer of 2011 and is on sale now.
