Combines a variety of recipes, including the famous "21" Burger and Traditional Crab Cakes, with stories that recount the history of the restaurant and anecdotes about the famous celebrities that have visited there. Tour.
This book conjures up nostalgic images of glamorous days gone by, but Lomonaco's up-to-date recipes return it firmly to the present. More than a cookbook, it's really a scrapbook/history of the high-society restaurant that began as a speakeasy: there are photographs of famous patrons, from presidents to movie stars, writers, and tycoons; cartoons and drawings by New Yorker contributors and other well-known artists; and newspaper clippings, movie stills, and more memorabilia. The recipes include the traditional dishes for which "21" is known, but anyone who thinks the restaurant still serves nothing but its signature hamburgers and chicken hash will be pleasantly surprised by Lomonaco's contemporary creations. The well-written text is very readable and includes lots of detailed information on food, techniques, and wine. Highly recommended. Copyright 1995 Cahners Business Information.
