Zagat issues new map of Gotham's neighborhoods, restaurants

NEW YORK -- Searching for a New York City restaurant's location?

Zagat Survey, the popular restaurant guide, has redrawn its map of the city's best places to eat. From Alison on Dominick to Zoe, the 2000 edition of Zagat Map: New York City helps diners find their way to 216 of Manhattan's top restaurants.

Fourteen detailed neighborhood maps help pinpoint dozens of additional restaurants, along with major hotels and such New York landmarks as Rockefeller Center and South Street Seaport.

Standout locations were selected from the "Zagat 2000 New York City Restaurant Survey" of more than 1,800 eateries.

Alphabetical listings surrounding the map give each restaurant's food, service and decor rankings from the 2000 survey, along with address and phone number.

The reverse side focuses on dining in 26 city neighborhoods, among them Midtown, Chelsea, Murray Hill, the Flatiron/Gramercy Park/Madison Park triad, the theater district and neighborhoods downtown, including Little Italy and Chinatown.

Zagat Map: New York City is available in bookstores for $5.95 or via the Web at
