From Publishers Weekly:
Mariani, Esquire's restaurant critic, and von Bidder, the general manager of Four Seasons, are so extolling of the splendors and cuisine of this midtown Manhattan institution that their book reads like a press release. Not that their praise is pure hyperbole, only excessively self-promoting, for the longevity of this 30-year-old eatery (which was decreed a landmark historical site in 1989) wasn't achieved by serving curdled Bearnaise. The authors describe at length the environs: the Mies van der Rohe-designed Seagram building (and how it was built) housing Four Seasons; the 20-foot-square, white Carrara marble pool in the restaurant's Pool Room; the draperies of anodized aluminum chains on the windows of the Grill Room; the lunch bunch-lauded here as the "most productive members of society"-that includes publishing folk Mort Janklow, Michael Korda and Betty Prashker. A few years ago when New York magazine tested the noise in Manhattan restaurants, Four Seasons was found to have the lowest decibel level-the same, though, can't be said for its book. Photos.
