Reviewers are fascinated by a new book that reveals immigrant life through five families and what they ate in their Lower East Side, NYC tenement home, 97 Orchard St, now the Tenement Museum.

The Barnes and Noble Review is the latest, calling 97 Orchard by Jane Ziegelman, an “illuminating, rangy, and wonderfully atmospheric book.”
