New York magazine has written a piece, which is quintessentially a New ... York ... Piece ... meaning the kind of character featured, a 27-year-old Brooklynite who spends essentially every spare dollar on dining out, may only exist in the Big Apple.

Don't dismiss this out of hand. Instead, take a moment and think about where you spend what you make. Is food your biggest vice?
