WELCOME TO MY BOOKSHOP

Portrait of Bonnie with cookbooks

It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 15 years.

Old cookbooks are my specialty—from 18th-century rarities to a replacement for your favorite, threadbare Betty Crocker. Here you’ll find volumes on the restaurants of New York; Jewish, African-American, Asian, European, and other ethnic and international cookbooks; cocktail guides; etiquette manuals; vintage copies of Gourmet, Saveur, and Cook's Illustrated; hundreds of colorful advertising booklets from decades past; and so much more. I’d love to have you visit my cozy Greenwich Village shop, but if you can’t, just tell me what you're looking for or what subject you’re researching, and I can help you “browse” over the phone or by email.

Ellis Island Cookbook cover

The ideal souvenir of a visit to New York: Tom Bernardin’s Ellis Island Cookbook. I also carry the wonderful 1961 Greenwich Village map that Tom has had reprinted. Read about it here.

Italian cookbooks

The Italian cookbooks fill three shelves and, in times of true abbondanza, overflow onto the table and even the floor. The first Italian cookbook published in English in the United States, Simple Italian Cookery by Antonia Isola (a pseudonym), appeared in 1912.
