Compelling tale of culinary underdogs
11 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best film on the restaurant business I've seen.

The film goes behind the scenes to follow the dramatic struggle and eventual triumph of two friends who decide to open in the toughest restaurant city in the world. The director subtly weaves in hard facts and the perspective of New York and industry insiders (celebrity chefs, restaurateurs, critics) to help explain the real reasons why restaurants succeed or fail and always returns to the story of the underdogs trying to build a little restaurant of their own so that you can actually see for yourself. You root for the guys from the start. Funny, comprehensive, and great access. Very authentic yet optimistic view of NY and those who follow their passion. Worth it.
