Wonderful book about old restaurants that lasted for decades only to succumb to defeat in the early 21st century. It brought back memories of the extravagance of Chicago's Pump Room, and the Ashkenaz Deli. Lots of recipes to preserve for myself.

The book is beautiful. It's such a shame that these restaurants no longer exist. Now I'll have to recreate some of the recipes. Most seem easy enough; however, I did have to google a few cooking terms.

Some of the stories were very interesting and provide a slice-of-life look at many different times and communities. Haven't really tried any of the recipes but found a couple interesting ones. Actually wished the book was longer! A wonderful read for someone who enjoys food history.

Very enjoyable and fun to read, with recipes you'll never make if you value your health. Like butter steak. You know, just butter, lots of it, and steak.
Obviously a work of love by the author, and a nice little trip to the past

This is a beautiful book and has a wonderful cover, but that's about it. I didn't really care for the recipes that were chosen, especially from the restaurants I know and have been to.. Oh well. I am sure there will many who will enjoy it.. Personally, I didn't. Sorry

I loved this book. Not only is it beautiful, but it gives a wonderful
of many beloved, former restaurants across the country. A lovely
dip into history, with recipes worth trying.

There's a reason these recipes were lost. Most were overly fancy and did not sound appetizing. There were a few I'd like to try but only a very small number. Pretty cover though.
