KIRKUS REVIEW

Just the book to have around when out-of-towners want an eating place of definite specifications, for here are the restaurants catalogued, with prices and specialties indicated. The listings are preceded by some definitions -- what is a restaurant, appetizers, soup, fish and sea food, eggs, fowl, beef, veal, other meat dishes, desserts, (descriptions of foreign titled dishes), tipping and other tip-offs- and are broken down into steak and chop houses, fish, rural and regional, southern specialties, Scandinavian, German, spots for special moods, Italian, show-off date places, ladies-alone, haute cuisine, de luxe, luxury plus, where to see celebrities, budget-wise, Wall Street, confectioners, Swiss, Viennese and Hungarian, Jewish, Russian, Spanish, cocktail bars, strictly masculine, night clubs, East Indian, Chinese and Japanese, Armenian and Syrian, Sundays, summer and roof, out of town -- something for every taste. And what come-on he gives for the food! Very tempting for palate-tickling pursuit and an incentive to stay at homes.
