Publishers Text

Whether the guest's a native New Yorker or out-of-town business person or visitor, there is, quite simply, nothing like the Four Seasons restaurant. Even more astounding is its longevity--now 35 years old, in an era where fat and cholesterol are dirty words, where other just-as-fine dining establishments have expired, and where the tax deductibility of an expense-account meal has rapidly diminished. Teaming up with the restaurant's general manager, Mariani has produced a candid, occasionally irreverent tale of the Four Seasons' beginnings and the best and worst of times for this much-celebrated landmark. Appropriately, gossip, too, is not above the authors, who are eager to talk about the rich and famous. Twenty-two recipes from the menu, including many favorites such as the crisped shrimp with mustard fruit
and fancy cake, add a tasteful fillip to the book, while photographs act as a reminder that Robin Leach, Liz Smith, and other celebrity chroniclers were there.
