MEDIA REVIEWS
Even though some of these restaurants opened before I moved to the United States, I appreciate the style and flamboyancy of these historic establishments. They paved the way for Nobu restaurants and I am honored that the old L Orangerie restaurant is now Nobu Los Angeles. The book is fantastic and a must-read.
Chef Nobu, Nobu and Matsuhisa Restaurants
The wake of Tinseltown s heyday left behind some of the most iconic art and culture in American history. This is the perfect book for the food-obsessed who are also romanced by L.A. s rich history.
Curtis Stone, chef and restaurateur
This is a wonderfully evocative look at L.A. dining in an earlier timeand a reminder of how many good and imaginative restaurants the city has had, and how much fun it was to eat in them back then, before the era of restrictive diets and hipper-than-thou cuisine.
Colman Andrews, editorial director of TheDailyMeal.com
The best of L.A. s food history is all bound together in George Geary s remarkable book. Our restaurants in Los Angeles would never exist without these legends.
Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, Los Angeles chefs and restaurateurs
George Geary s book is a retrospective sublimely rich in history and flavor. It is a testament to L.A. s diverse cornucopia of cuisine.
Suzanne Tracht, executive chef and owner of Jar
From the Googie-inspired diners to the wholly fictional 'South Seas' of Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic s to the movie star hangouts of the Brown Derby and Chasen s, L.A. s Legendary Restaurants is a giddy, celebrity-filled look back at the culinary scene of twentieth century Los Angeles. I dare you to read this book and not feel nostalgic for those days.
Russ Parsons, former food editor of the Los Angeles Times
"A splendid ride through Old Hollywood! George Geary entices our sense of taste with his descriptions of famous dishes and recipes from L.A.'s classic restaurants and our sense of adventure with his antic tales of Golden Age celebrities. For me, the best part was the sense of preservation in the descriptions, facts, architect listings, and pictures of the fabulous buildings that housed these iconic restaurants, many of which have been lost to time."
