Love restaurants? Then you’re going to love this! Journalist Reggie Nadelson has released At Balthazar: The New York Brasserie at the Center of the World, a tell-all narrative about the drama of the iconic restaurant that serves over half a million meals per year.
Nadelson was granted complete access to this historic restaurant, giving her an honest and unbiased view of this New York staple. She tells the story of how Keith McNally, dubbed “The Restaurateur Who Invented Downtown” by the New York Times, changed the city and Balthazar’s contribution to what we now know as SoHo. She also tells the story of immigrants, a key factor in the restaurant’s success.
Dispearsed throughout the book are also great recipes like the grilled cheese above. At Balthazar, a beautiful story about the love affair between food and New York City, is available now at $27.
