The Frankies Spuntino Cookbook

The Frankies Spuntino Cookbook

Brooklynites are already familiar, but for those of you that don't live in the city that never sleeps, The Frankies Spuntino Cookbook ($16) is as close as you're going to get to the storied restaurant in Carroll Gardens. Packed with re-imagined versions of Italian-American food, the recipes inside are easy to cook yet deeply satisfying, kinda like a random hook-up with an old flame from high school.

  • Spacesuits

    How can you tell a real astronaut apart from a deranged, Sigourney Weaver in Alien-obsessed wannabe? The suit, of course. Spacesuits ($20) is a short but art-worthy look at the history of the spacesuit, featuring interesting history mixed in with professional photos of spacesuits ranging from the earliest manned space flights to the latest and greatest shuttle missions, courtesy of the National Air and Space Museum.

  • How to Booze

    Believe it or not, there really is a manual. How to Booze: Exquisite Cocktails & Unsound Advice ($10) is a two hundred-plus page guide to choosing the right drink at the right moment, written by two long-time NYC bartenders who offer up expert-level information on each drink and its characteristics, while doling out equal services of the kind of life advice that comes from years of listening to people bare their souls and chests at the bar.
