New York: Hidden Bars & Restaurants

A supper club on a helipad, a dinner in a dumpster, a hidden heavy metal bar in Brooklyn, a dim-sum restaurant that turns into a nightclub, New York’s “most legitimate speakeasy,” a club “not open since 2009,” a Swiss ski chalet accessed through a kitchen, a referral-only Japanese restaurant, a grungy underground sake bar, an open-to-the-public dining room in the United Nations, gourmet donuts inside a car wash, restaurants inside freight entrances ...

A hundred places with amazing decor, eccentric owners, bizarre food, old-time survivors and more that will please and astonish underground and post-industrial design buffs, refined gourmets and cocktail drinkers, world food lovers and anyone curious enough to discover the infinite possibilities to have fun in New York.

New York: Hidden Bars & Restaurants was published by Jonglez Editions in 2015 and won a Bronze award in the 2016 NATJA (North American Travel Journalists Association) Travel Media Awards Competition. 


Fodor's Brooklyn

Brooklyn is the most talked about, trendsetting destination in the world. Fodor's Brooklyn, the first comprehensive guidebook to New York City's most exciting borough, is unlike any we've ever published. Written and illustrated by locals, it's infused with authentic Brooklyn flavor throughout—making it the go-to guide for locals and visitors alike.

Laura wrote the Greenpoint and Williamsburg chapters. Fodor's Brooklyn was published by Penguin Random House in 2015 and won a silver medal in the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism competition.
