Where Paris Dines by Julian Street – a 5-star restaurant guide

Restaurant guides are pretty dull on the whole and these days you are probably going to head online for reviews and write-ups, but things were different in Bohemian Paris in 1929.

Where Paris Dines by Julian Street is a wonderful throwback with an amazing dust jacket. Here’s the entry for Cloche d’Or – “Opposite Moulin Rouge, Montmarte – No dancing. Native wild life gathers after other joints close. Good bar. Wandering singers. Little known to tourists. A good place to get your throat cut in an expensive setting.”

Julian Street (1879-1947) was an American author, journalist, dramatist, gourmet, and travel writer. Where Paris Dines was first published in 1924. He was well known for his humorous writing. My Enemy the Motor, A Tale in Eight Honks and One Crash is another example of his work.
