About the Book.
Join former editor and cartoonist for The New Yorker, Brooklynite John Donohue, in conversation with Editor-in-Chief of Eater, Amanda Kludt, for the launch of his first book of drawings, All the Restaurants in New York. From romantic spots like Le Bernardin to holes-in-the-wall like Corner Bistro, John Donohue renders beloved restaurants in a manner that captures the emotional pull these place shave on our hearts. Characterized by their appealingly loose and gently distorted lines, his drawings are intentionally spare, leaving us room to layer on meaning and draw connections to our own memories of a meal, of a moment, of an atmosphere. Since 2017, Donohue has drawn close to 400 New York establishments. He works in ink, from life, with no corrections, and each one takes him almost exactly twenty minutes.Buy tickets/get more info now
