Shteyngart Bites!

Among other things Gary Shteyngart is a sought-after commentator on food.

"The world is there to be tasted" is how the Arts and Culture website Jewcy formulates his philosophy in a 2008 profile, "Epicure on Rye."

In a recent Esquire interview on the subject of vodka, he instructs readers on how to drink like a Bolshevik.

And in a 2006 "Grub Street" piece in New York Magazine (pictured here), he samples the bounty of New York ethnic cuisine.
