S4 EP2-Tom Hynes, author of Wild City: A Brief History of New York City in 40 Animals
Oysters, striped bass, and Pizza Rat? Another NotAFoodie Episode? Are we really back??
This week Tom and Mike speak about the success of the Mikey Pomodoro Pop-Ups and the TikTok pasta craze. They interview the always informative, Tom Hynes, author of Wild City: A Brief History of New York City in 40 Animals. They talk about (really) old-school restaurant practices, the great piggery war of 1859, oysters, fishing the east river, and how seagulls and opossums both deserved a chapter in the book.
