Kunda Eats Announces The 2012 Edition Of The Best New Restaurants In America

Over 200 restaurants in 53 cities named to the inaugural list.

New York (November 2012) Kunda Eats (www.kundaeats.com), a consumer website geared to global food and travel, has published the 2012 Edition of Kunda Eats Best New Restaurants in America.  The book honors recently opened restaurants (late 2010 to 2011) throughout the United States. With 204 entries, representing 35 states and 53 cities, the list is the most comprehensive compilation of such information to be found anywhere.

The winning restaurants encompassed all types and manner of dining establishments, from high-end to cheap eats.  “Using a unique methodology, our egalitarian approach does not discriminate based on size, cost, décor, location, or type of cuisine,” writes Co-Founder Manoj Kunda. “We believe that a great dining experience, in which the food, service, and atmosphere combine to create a memorable moment, can be had just as easily at a small food truck in Buffalo as it can at a fancy, white-tablecloth restaurant in Manhattan.”

The book is written in an easy to read format providing all relevant contact information, as well as simple, yet informative bullet points that provide excellent overviews for each restaurant.  The book is available at Amazon for $14.95.  Kindle users with Amazon Prime can download the book for free.
