This book has great incite to one of the top restaurants in the world. Really lets you know how much work is put in to get to this level in this industry. The book was a very easy read for me as i am a chef and love books about food and restaurants.

Though Brenner's descriptions of the dining experience at Daniel were nicely done, her personal interpretations of things that were happening in the kitchen were maddeningly inaccurate. She sometimes tried to explain cooks' actions or reactions to particular orders, and made it painfully clear that she had no experience on which to base her supposed observation. Too often she inserted peoples' mindsets into her writing, instead of sticking to the observational writing that made the good parts of the book enjoyable. As a cook, it was very frustrating to watch an outsider write as though she knew what other people were thinking.

DANIEL is a great restaurant. This book gives you an excellent account of what happens behind the scene. It shows you the amount of work, care, dedication and talent that goes into the food of every Four-star restaurant. If Anthony Bourdain's 'Kitchen Confidential' shows you what kinds of kitchen you do not want to work in, this book shows you the kind of kitchen you aspire to work in. At the end, it's the people that counts. The book gives long overdue credit to the nurturing and generous executive chef Alex Lee and affirms the culinary genius of Daniel Boulud.
