If you work or if you don't work in the restaurant industry, I'd recommend this book.
It is a great inside story of a hard business, an interesting look behind the scenes at one of the most successful restaurant groups in the world.
After reading it, well, all I can say is that I'll never walk into a restaurant the same way again.
Bastianich can be a little self-congratulatory in the book, but he has conquered an incredibly difficult business in one of the toughest cities in the world. He is most definitely passionate, and his chapter(s) on wine truly convey his passion. He has captured a lot of the essence of what it is to be a "restaurant man". As a former restaurant owner, I enjoyed the book and found it interesting how many shared traits and experiences we had in common. If you haven't worked in the business, enjoy the book, including the salty language! This is what it's like.
it's a non issue.
Every details to run well a restaurant are in this book.
I love it! I totally get it and really respect his honesty, integrity, 'realness', and generosity in sharing the real experience of what it meant, and what it now means, to be successful in the restaurant business.
His writing style is like having a one-one conversation with him. His candor and swearing may not be appreciated by some women but, as an italian-Canadian male, I loved it! My mission now is to experience as many of his restaurants as possible.
I can go on and on but have to say that I wish him and his great family continued success as they deserve it!

First of all, I disagreed with the use of so many 'f' words in the writing. It was not suitable for a serious reader. Read morePublished on July 30 2013 by Sally
