9781626191266: Historic Restaurants of Washington, D.C.:: Capital Eats (American Palate)

While today foodies flock to the flavors of Logan Circle and the H Street corridor, Washington's first true restaurants opened around 1830. Waves of immigrants introduced a global mix of ingredients to the capital's eager palates by opening eateries like the venerable China Doll Gourmet and Cleveland Park's Roma Restaurant. By the twentieth century, the array of dishes to tempt hungry residents was astounding. Diners could have tea at Garfinckel's Greenbrier or lunch at local favorites such as Little Tavern or Ben's Chili Bowl. For an elegant evening, fine restaurants like Rive Gauche and the Sans Souci satisfied the most sophisticated gastronome. With careful research and choice recipes, "Streets of Washington" blogger John DeFerrari chronicles the culinary and social history of the capital through its restaurants, tasting his way from the lavish Gilded Age dining halls of the Willard Hotel to the Hot Shoppe's triple-decker Mighty Mo.

About the Author:

John DeFerrari, a native Washingtonian with a lifelong passion for local history, pens the Streets of Washington blog and is the author of Lost Washington, D.C. (The History Press, 2011) and Historic Restaurants of Washington, D.C.: Capital Eats (The History Press, 2013). DeFerrari is active in historic preservation and serves as a trustee of the D.C.

Review:

"A smorgasbord of local history, from the earliest days of taverns and hotel dining rooms, through the tearoom craze and up to the haute cuisine of the late 20th century." - John Kelly, The Washington Post

"DeFerrari presents a rich litany of DC restaurants, from Hot Shoppes and Ben's Chili Bowl to the elegant dining rooms of the Willard Hotel and the tearooms of Woodward & Lothrop and Garfinckel's." - Karen Lyon, The Hill Rag

"The thoroughly-researched book also includes a visual array of photos, postcards, and old newspaper clips." - Nicole Dubowitz, dcist.com

"Carefully researched and beautifully illustrated.... I particularly liked his chapters 'Black Washington's Restaurants' and 'Power Lunches and Dinners.'" - Jan Whitaker, Restaurant-ing through history
