Overview

Remembrance of a Restaurant: A Decameron of Dining by Frank Palescandolo

With recipes on reminiscence, this memoir recreates the actuality of cooking, and the genial dining that characterized a notable Neapolitan restaurant called Villa Joe's, a Coney Island mark founded by the author's parents some sixty-odd years ago, and operating till bulldozed by urban renewal. Substance of this book is a trove of charming anecdotes, with a sampling of recipes.

In the memoir subtitled A Decameron of Dining, one hundred anecdotes, vignettes, and sketches enliven the ambience of a notable and notorious patronage. Charming, piquant, touching and comedic are the lives and dining habits of thousands who crossed the threshold of this famous establishment. It would be nice if all famous restaurants were so devotedly recorded. Restaurants are such marvelous core samples of the past. Remembrance of a Restaurant is a delightful and nostalgic read.
