Dining Out in Boston: A Culinary History
James C. O'ConnellPaper: $27.95
Although it specifically features Boston, the work does have a broader theme that shows the changes that took place within the restaurant industry as the US grew. At the same time, the study is informative regarding Americans’ appetites and their evolving desire to leave the hot kitchen. . . . Recommended.
[O’Connell] gives a well-documented account of the nineteenth-century transitions that were important for the development of a food culture, and a restaurant scene that provided options for everyone. . . . The images are a boon for students and scholars alike.
