Critic Reviews for Eat This New York

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (8)

It's more of a nouvelle-cuisine starter course than a square meal.

The oddest thing about this sweet but not entirely satisfying documentary is how little food is involved.

April 23, 2004

This lively, absorbing documentary about best friends who open a tiny cafe in the heart of Brooklyn is full of such mouth-watering shots of cooking and eating that a jumbo-sized popcorn and pallid soda simply won't do.

Serves a full course meal in Restaurant 101.

So, how's the food? The camera never even goes up close. That's the kind of restaurant documentary this is.

January 30, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A documentary with a terrific name but a blurry premise.
