Continental Style from Caesar to Thermidor: Classic Dining in America 

Nightlife historian Peter Moruzzi takes you to America’s finest mid-century restaurants – continental style fine dining establishments, historic steakhouses, lounge restaurants and Polynesian palaces – that persevere in U.S. cities large and small. Through exclusive new and vintage photography, Moruzzi celebrates culinary pioneers and multi-generation restaurateurs, uncovers authentic gems, and debunks the predicted demise of the white tablecloth restaurant.  A rollicking journey from past to present. 

See you there!

Peter
