While some restaurants come and go with little fanfare, others are dearly missed and never forgotten. In 1962, patrons of the Caucus Club were among the first to hear the voice of an eighteen-year-old Barbra Streisand. Before Stouffer s launched a frozen food empire, it was better known for its restaurants with two popular locations in Detroit. The Machus Red Fox was the last place former Teamsters president Jimmy Hoffa was seen alive. Through stories and recipes nearly lost to time, author Paul Vachon explores the history of the Motor City s fine dining, ethnic eateries and everything in between. Grab a cup of coffee he s got stories to share."

From the Author:

Writing Lost Restaurants of Detroit was challenging and exciting at the same time.  I'm a lifelong Detroiter, and many of the establishments included resonate in my personal memory.  But before taking on this project I had no experience writing on a food related topic. It soon opened a new world for me.Acquiring the style and cadence of restaurant journalism was an education in itself.  When combined with learning the backgrounds of so many bistros and bars, I felt like I stepped into a whole new profession.Detroit history--like that of most cities--is multi layered. My hope is that you, the reader, will gain from my book an appreciation of this one essential component.
