America Eats Out: An Illustrated History of Restaurants, Taverns, Coffee Shops, Speakeasies, and Other Establishments That Have Fed Us for 350 Years
by John Mariani
Hardcover, dust jacket, 8 1/2" x 10 1/4", 288 pages, new and in mint condition.
Contains 175 black-and-white photographs and illustrations.

From the dust jacket:

American is truly the land of bounty. Where else can diners choose between a roadside burger joint or a grand luxe restaurant where the ambiance and clientele are part of an evening's entertainment? Nowhere else do citizens enjoy such a dizzying array of food possibilities, and no other culture is as intrinsically defined by the notion, "We are where we eat."

From the beginning restaurants in America have lured customers with a gimmick. Whether it was the novelty of serving a hot lunch in the middle of the day, as they did at Delmonico's or the idea of having a pizza delivered to your home in thirty minutes or less, the story of America's eateries begins with inspiration - which leads directly to innovation and imitation.

In this witty social history filled with anecdotes and 175 black-and-white illustrations, John Mariani traces the evolution of American restaurants from rough-and-tumble eighteenth-century inns to today's deluxe dining rooms, and recounts the fascinating exploits of men and women dedicated to feeding their brethren. This is the story of how the you-gotta-have-a-gimmick entreprenurial spirit has been the driving force behind the restaurant business since the first hungry settlers stepped ashore. And, because so much of American culture is explained by its being set in restaurants, this narrative reveals much about us and our fantasies.

Beginning with colonial inns catering to coach travelers, where the food was largely execrable and the lodgings downright dreary, Mariani tracks the growth of restaurant dining in all its formats - from the ridiculous to the sublime. Starting with the arrival of Giovanni Delmonico, who found fame and fortune by introducing elegance to New York diners, through the advent of restaurateur-cum-showman Mervyn Leroy, who took the singles bar to new heights one and a half centuries later with Maxwell's Plum, the story that unfolds is often amusing and always entertaining.

Meet Englishman Fred Harvey, who "innovated" simple, good food service in pristing surroundings in depot restaurants alongside the Santa Fe Railroad tracks. Discover how a Wichita, Kansas, fry cook named Walter Anderson changed the face of American dining when he perfected a way to slow-cook hamburgers and opened the country's first White Castle, paving the way for McDonald's, Wendy's, and the rest of America's fast food competitors.

The history of American restaurants is intimately, irrevocably tied to out vaunted mobility, both geographic and sociological. When we hit the road, we're off on an adventure that's dedicated in no small measure to finding new foods and new places to enjoy it. From eateries shaped like elephants and giant coffeepots to New York's Four Seasons power lunch or stargazing at Los Angeles's Spago, the restaurant is never merely a place to eat. It's a place to see and be seen in, to hang out and drop in, to seduce and be seduced, a home away from home, and an ever-evolving living theater. Good and bad taste are equal factors - and there's plenty of both to go around in this remarkable American saga.
