Dimes Times: Emotional Eating


With more than 50 recipes from menus past and present at Dimes—the beloved all-day restaurant in Manhattan’s Chinatown—Dimes Times: Emotional Eating lets regulars (and everyone else) bring home some of their healthy, delectable dishes and signature sauces. Founded by Sabrina De Sousa and Alissa Wagner, Dimes (and later, its companion, the nearby Dimes Deli and Market, founded with Sophie Helsby) changed the culinary landscape of its neighborhood. The cookbook features snippets of conversation from inside the restaurant, captured by Wagner and Toniann Fernandez, and honors its loyal community. Mary Manning contributes numerous photographs and Erin Knutson, who co-designed the book with De Sousa, adds the abstract graphics.
