Additional Details

Description: Like its predecessor, this book is an almanac of good eating. Whether you go by automobile or in imagination, it takes you on a gourmet's tour of the United States. In these famous restaurants and their specialties much of America's history is reflected. Here are taverns that played host to Washington, a restaurant that was a log home, and one with an actual trading post on its grounds. You can have johnny cakes in an inn that was a pre-Revolutionary grist mill and bean soup in the restaurant founded by a protege of Buffalo Bill. 

In these paintings, descriptions, and recipes of famous eating places are found also the atmosphere and cuisine of other countries. Here are an English chop house; Scandinavian, Russian, and Armenian restaurants; and one establishment where meals are served by Sikhs and Hindus in native costume. 

From Maine to California, these dining places are set in spots of natural beauty. One has a mountain stream running through it; the dance floor of another is in the mouth of a huge. cave. There are restaurants in the heart of the blue grass country, on a ranch, in skiing areas. 

This book's "tour" takes you also into restaurants with fascinating decor. One is decorated with Easter Island idols. There is one patterned after a Roman temple. Others house collections of early American flags, heads of game animals, and antique rifles. 

For the motorist's convenience, this book groups the eating places geo- graphically and tells their exact locations and when they are open. Like the restaurants, this book promises good food with dividends of attractive settings.
