Jim Leff, the author of ''The Eclectic Gourmet Guide to Greater New York City: The Undiscovered World of Hyperdelicious Offbeat Eating in All Five Boroughs,'' (Menasha Ridge Press, 1999), said he has seen squid-ink pasta on the menus in some mainstream Italian restaurants. Tripe, the stomach tissue of cows and ox - served with tomato sauce and peas at Ferdinando's, an essential part of South American cuisines - is another food that is becoming more common in New York, Mr. Leff said.

Secret places, hidden places, offbeat places, but above all delicious places to eat--at every price range--in the Greater New York City area. Respected food writer and chowhound extraordinaire Jim Leff has loaded the pages of this handy guidebook with edible treasure: a sleek basement sashimi oasis, a Harlem church that invites the public in on weekends for pork chops, and even one holdout--in the mostly unlikely Brooklyn neighborhood--making awesome time machine pastrami sandwiches. Most restaurants profiled are unknown "virgin" finds, but there are also useful new takes on a few more familiar venues.

Written with passion, good humor, and contagious enthusiasm, this ultrasavvy, highly cross-referenced guide is the answer to any chowhound's prayers. But even timid eaters will be sorely tempted to jump on a subway to grab some masterful roast suckling pig in Williamsburg, rich mamaliga in Long Island City, chow fun at the only good Garment District Chinese, or perfect homestyle latkes and potato kugel from a trailor parked in an abandoned lot across from the Brooklyn Navy Yards.

After several trips to New York, I wanted to strike out on my own in search of interesting restaurants. I sat down with this book and a city map, and plotted out likely destinations.

I, the visitor, had the opportunity to act as tour guide for my New York City relatives. At an opportune mealtime, I was able to lead us to a nearby destination, and find a place that made everyone happy.

The Eclectic Gourmet is just as advertised, a collection of good, but off of the mainstream, restaurants that are guaranteed to provide an interesting and often adventurous dining experience.

The restaurant selection is wondrous and the reviews are unbiased, unpartisan, and accurate. I have had many wonderful meals thank to this book. Highly recommended.
