Overview

In this tart, tautly written, hilariously funny insider look at the restaurant business, Trevor White offers an impassioned, unbiased expose of the world of dining out. From the most fashionable tables in New York, London, and Paris to local fast-food chains, he takes us behind the scenes and demonstrates that all too often we are being conned or cowed by overrated, egomaniacal chefs, pretentious waiters, and self-important critics, whose cursory evaluations and often prejudiced reviews can sound the death knell of a worthy eatery. A scathing attack on gourmet dogma, White's defiantly populist critique of today's restaurant culture redefines the dining room as a place in which people have the right to be satisfied rather than intimidated. Included, too, is a fascinating conversation between celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain and the author, where both reveal their respective viewpoints on the culinary world.
