"Classic continental-style dining involves all of the senses." -Peter Moruzzi
Over the years, the softly lit wood-paneled interiors, starched tablecloths, curved booths, tuxedoed captains, and tableside service that once defined classic continentalstyle fine dining have gradually disappeared. Equally, the number of historic restaurants filled with character and old-school ambiance dwindle with each passing year. Yet, vestiges cling to life in cities large and small. Through vivid new color photography and vintage material, Classic Dining celebrates the great mid-century restaurants that continue to thrive in New York, the greater Miami area, New Orleans, Las Vegas, the Chicago area, Los Angeles, and across the United States. Includes a directory of midcentury restaurants across America.
Historian Peter Moruzzi is the author of Havana Before Castro: When Cuba Was a Tropical Playground and Palm Springs Holiday: A Vintage Tour from Palm Springs to the Salton Sea. He is passionate about the architecture, classic restaurants, and nightlife of the mid-twentieth century. He is the founding president of the Palm Springs Modern Committee and resides in the Silver Lake District of Los Angeles and in Palm Springs. Visit his blog at PeterMoruzzi.com.
