Publisher's Summary

Are you hungry? Perhaps for some takeout, with a heaping side of some of the most scrumptious voices in the English language?

You said you'd listen to your favorite narrators read anything: Well, this ambrosial new audiobook brings together an acclaimed cast of narrators to read aloud the menus of some of our favorite local restaurants here at Audible headquarters in Newark, New Jersey, as only they know how. You haven't truly lived, or dined, until you've heard Cassandra Campbell capture the emotional nuances of Newark's best Indian-inflected burgers or let Nick Podehl extol the virtues of the pear arugula salad and then seductively steer you toward a plate of creamy mushroom linguini.

Six world-class narrators, six iconic Newark restaurants - lunch will never be the same again.

The full list of narrators includes:

Chapter 1: Victor Bevine - HOBBY'S DELI
Chapter 2: Therese Plummer - REDD'S BIERGARTEN
Chapter 3: Cassandra Campbell - BURGER WALLA
Chapter 4: Nick Podehl - 27 MIX
Chapter 5: Eric Michael Summerer - MERCATO TOMATO PIE
Chapter 6: Bailey Carr - LA COCINA

Brilliant!

I was moved! I took an emotional journey from bratwurst to chile con carne and loved it! Happy Easter Fools to the Audible staff and thank you for an entertaining morning!

Cute idea! Thanks, Audible!

10 minutes of interesting listening! I've spent most of my time in Newark inside the airport, so I'm not familiar with the restaurants.

Okay, yeah I COULD listen to them read anything

I hope the readers enjoyed this as much as I did as a listener. Also I weirdly want to go to Newark for lunch with audible staff, they have great taste in restaurants. Good choice to not go with the cliché phonebook, this put much more meat on the bone for the readers to work with. I chewed my way through this one in one sitting would have come back for more.

I never know my life was missing this

Starts off a little slow at first, but the narrators really get into character and you can actually hear the hunger in their voices. I'll warn you, the characters in this book are deep, they'll become entwined in your soul and your belly will growl for more. I personally fell in love with the pastrami sandwich. Can't wait for the next in the series!

Nothing but succulent and sexy food descriptions.

I’ve never wanted to visit Newark but after this performance it’s bound to be the must see travel destination for foodies across the USA. Sloof Lirpa is amazing and her bonus chapter is epic. Her description of meadow muffin sliders is audio perfection.

Chapter 2!!!

As short as this was Chapter 2 made it all worth while. I wish there was a drink and dessert menu added to the chapter. Maybe it’s in the unabridged version.

Oh my!

This was one epic roller coaster of a ride. The lobster ravioli kept me at the edge of the seat but then La Cocina came in with the closer and made everything alright in the world.

20 more minutes and it would be perfect!

I think that with 20 more minutes that would be the very best "falling asleep" narration EVER! Kudos to you Audible! ;)
