"Adults make too many judgments based on the appearance of the restaurants," David Pines, a 12-year-old food critic told the New York Daily News in March. "They get mad because the glasses weren’t all there when they walked in. I’m like, who cares? How did the food taste?"

Following this philosophy, the "middle-school foodie," as he calls himself, published Pines Picks: A Kid’s Guide to the Best Things to Eat and Drink in New York City, said to be the first ever New York City food guide written from a kid’s point of view.

Though the book is intended for a younger audience, Pines did not focus on typically childish food. He rated close to 100 different varieties of food, and stuck to a method of eating the same types of food at once, making it easier to find the better-tasting dish.
