Summary

From Sardi’s to the Russian Tea Room, Broadway’s most iconic restaurants take center stage in this collection of classic recipes.   Since before Sinatra found his favorite table at Patsy’s, New York City’s Theater District has overflowed with the glamour of Broadway stars and the famous restaurants that cater to their appetites. For many audience members, the pre- or post-show meal is the most memorable part of a night out on The Great White Way.  Taste of Broadway collects recipes from some of the most famous restaurants in the district, including the Algonquin, the Russian Tea Room, Sardi’s, the “21” Club and many more. Full of photographs, quotes from bartenders and regulars, as well as Broadway restaurant history and lore, this book offers plenty of local color to savor.

    For many years, Saint-Germain-des-Prés has been a stronghold of sans culottes, a refuge to artists, a paradise for bohemians. It's where Marat printed L'Ami du Peuple and Thomas Paine wrote The Rights of Man. Napoleon, Hemingway, and Sartre have all called it home. Descartes is buried there. Now bestselling author and Paris expert John Baxter takes listeners on a narrative tour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, which is also where Baxter makes his home.Tucked along the shores of the Left Bank, Saint-Germain-des-Prés embodies so much of what makes Paris special. Its cobblestone streets and ancient facades survive to this day, spared from modernization thanks to a quirk in their construction. Traditionally cheap rents attracted outsiders and political dissidents from the days of Robespierre to the student revolts of the 1960s. And its intellectual pedigree boasts such luminaries as Pablo Picasso, Arthur Rimbaud, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Simone de Beauvoir, Gertrude Stein, and Albert Camus.Part-history, part-guidebook, Saint-Germain-des-Prés is a fresh look at one of the City of Light's most iconic quarters, and a delight for new tourists and Paris veterans alike.
