Monday on No Reservations - Disappearing Manhattan

I am really looking forward to this episode. Some of you know that Tony grew up just outside New York City, Manhattan. Some institutions of his youth are still going strong, some are hanging on by a thread and some luck, and some of which have since disappeared. Tony wants to remember 'his' Manhattan by visiting some of his favorites while he still can. Tony will be talking and eating with some notable guests, visit some of the oldest, most classic, and undoubtedly-NY restaurants. These cherished landmarks, such as Katz's Deli, Russ & Daughters, Hop Kee (check out the sneak preview below, makes me want to make some wonton soup for dinner!), and Sammy's Romanian, have become the heart and soul of this great city and its proud and honorable culinary history rich with cultural and ethnic diversity.

Unfortunately, due to the changing times, these establishments are in danger of disappearing off the NYC cultural map. Tony refers to this beautiful episode as his love song to the great city of New York.
