Under the Radar DVD of the Week: 'Eat This New York'
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“Eat This New York”
New York gobbles up new restaurants and spits them out mercilessly. In fact, about 1,000 new restaurants open in the city each year, and four out of five of them fail within the first five years. That’s a sobering fact that informs the tasty documentary “Eat This New York,” due out on DVD Tuesday.
This 2004 film from directors Kate Novack and Andrew Rossi follows two corn-fed novices from Minneapolis as they move east and decide to open a trendy new bistro in the toughest restaurant city in the world.
Best friends Billy Phelps and John McCormick, two long-time motorcycle enthusiasts, had no experience at all in the food industry when they decided to stake out a small corner space in gentrified Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2001 and open a cozy little place called Moto.
These dreamy entrepreneurs envisioned their restaurant as a comfy community hub in the old neighborhood where Hispanic and Orthodox Jewish communities once bumped together and where now hip young scensters with fat trust funds reign.
