To celebrate his new book, New York City's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in the Big Apple, author Ben Westhoff goes beyond the well known NYC dives like Mars Bar to give some love to his favorites that are "short on plasma screens, Wi-Fi connections, and organic-ingredient cocktails, but they're sturdy and welcoming in their own ways". The list even includes Team Eater's own fave dive, Port 41. [VV, Amazon]
