Synopsis

From Delmonicos to Sylvias to Chez Panisse, a daring and original history of dining out in America as told through ten legendary restaurants Combining a historians rigor with a foodies palate, Ten Restaurants That Changed America reveals how the history of our restaurants reflects nothing less than the history of America itself. Whether charting the rise of our love affair with Chinese food through San Franciscos fabled the Mandarin, evoking the richness of Italian food through Mamma Leones, or chronicling the rise and fall of French haute cuisine through Henri Souls Le Pavillon, food historian Paul Freedman uses each restaurant to tell a wider story of race and class, immigration and assimilation. Freedman also treats us to a scintillating history of the then-revolutionary Schraffts, a chain of convivial lunch spots that catered to women, and that bygone favorite, Howard Johnsons, which pioneered on-the-road dining, only to be swept aside by McDonalds. Ten Restaurants That Changed America is a significant and highly entertaining social history.
