Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Formatted Contents Note: Ten restaurants and American cuisine -- Delmonico's : America's first restaurant -- Antoine's : haute Creole -- Schrafft's : seeking out the female customer -- Howard Johnson's : as American as fried clams -- Mamma Leone's : Italian entertainment -- The Mandarin : "the best Chinese food east of the Pacific" -- Sylvia's : the soul of Harlem -- Le Pavillon : midcentury French -- The Four Seasons : the epitome of modern -- Chez Panisse : "the way we eat now" -- Epilogue : 1980 to the present.
Summary, etc.: Freedman 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 Francisco's fabled The Mandarin or evoking the richness of Italian food through Mamma Leone's, he uses each restaurant to tell a wider story of race and class, immigration and assimilation.
