Q & A with Peter Moruzzi at LA Weekly

Here are my candid answers to questions regarding the disappearance of classic restaurants, contemporary dining trends, New Orleans, Googie, and the quirkiness of Taix.  It was a recorded conversation so I can’t complain that I was misquoted.  Check it out at:  http://blogs.laweekly.com/squidink/2012/11/peter_moruzzi_classic_dining.php


About Peter Moruzzi

Historian Peter Moruzzi is passionate about the middle decades of the 20th century: its nightlife, classic dining, and architecture. Born in Concord, Massachusetts and raised in Hawaii, Moruzzi graduated from the University of California at Berkeley and later attended the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. In 1999, he founded the Palm Springs Modern Committee (PS ModCom) an architectural preservation group. In 2006, Moruzzi produced "Desert Holiday," a jaunty documentary chronicling the history of the Coachella Valley as seen through vintage postcards. He is also 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." Moruzzi's latest book is titled "Classic Dining: Discovering America's Finest Mid-Century Restaurants" with photography by Sven A. Kirsten. Peter Moruzzi resides with his partner in the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles and in Palm Springs.

    Very Good, Peter. You still owe me a salad.

    I like that Google map thing you did – was it difficult?

    Go, Peter, Go!
