L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants is an illustrated history of dozens of landmark eateries from throughout the City of Angels. From such classics as Musso & Frank and The Brown Derby in the 1920s to the see-and-be-seen crowds at Chasen’s, Romanoffs, and Ciro’s in the mid-20th century to the dawn of California cuisine at Ma Maison and Spago Sunset in the 1970s and ’80s, L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants celebrates the famous locations where Hollywood ate, drank, and played. Author George Geary leads you into the glamorous restaurants inhabited by the stars through a lively narrative filled with colorful anecdotes and illustrated with vintage photographs, historic menus, and timeless ephemera. Over 100 iconic recipes for entrees, appetizers, desserts, and drinks are included. But L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants contains much more than the fancy, high-priced restaurants favored by the Hollywood cognoscenti. The glamour of the golden age of drive-ins, drugstores, nightclubs, and hotels are also honored. What book on L.A. restaurants would be complete without tales of ice cream sundaes at C.C. Brown’s, cafeteria-style meals at Clifton’s, or a mai tai at Don the Beachcomber? Most of the locations in L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants no longer exist, but thanks to George Geary, the memories are still with us.

Los Angeles is one of the top restaurant cities in the world, and while much of the focus is on the new, it's the old standbys that offer a true taste of the city. These classic locales--best termed "joints" for their timeless flair--offer a unique perspective into the city's past and, in their enduring appeal, reveal what LA continues to be. Featuring more than fifty joints, including profiles of longtime patrons, plus their favorite menu items, "Los Angeles Restaurants" is proof that sometimes a dark corner booth in a mid-century steakhouse or a spot at a busy lunch counter is the best seat in town. "Los Angeles Restaurants" is more than a guidebook to the city's most iconic restaurants--it's a photographic adventure providing a fresh serving of the city's colorful past and its vibrant present.

L.A.'s Landmark Restaurants: Celebrating the Legendary Locations Where Angelenos Have Dined for Generations follows in the footsteps of George Geary's now classic and critically acclaimed book, L.A.'s Legendary Restaurants. Like Geary's earlier work, L.A.'s Landmark Restaurants is an illustrated history of over 50 famous Los Angeles restaurants from throughout the 20th century that were not featured in Geary's first book. However, the focus this time around is on restaurants that Angelenos--rather than celebrities--have been dining for generations. Along with recipes made famous by each restaurant, L.A.'s Landmark Restaurants contains profiles of such legendary eateries as Cole's, Phillipe the Original, Pacific Dining Car, The Original Pantry, Victor Hugo's, Canter's, Sportsman Lodge, Mocambo Nightclub, Nate 'N Al's, The Smoke House, Tail o' the Pup, The Apple Pan, Antonio's Pizzeria, and Valentino's, and dozens of other beloved establishments in this beautiful tribute to Los Angeles and its historic restaurants. Each location profiled is illustrated with a collection of historic and contemporary photographs and ephemera--such as menus, matchbooks, cocktail napkins, and coasters--and every entry features a short history of the restaurant, along with details such as date of opening, address, phone number (both original and current), type of cuisine, architectural details, interesting anecdotes, and celebrities associated with the establishment. Recipes made famous by the restaurant, updated for today's cook and kitchen by Chef Geary, will satisfy anyone seeking to replicate their favorite dish from these legendary restaurants and their chefs. Truly a love letter to Los Angeles and its world famous cuisine, L.A.'s Landmark Restaurants is sure to bring back treasured memories and knowing smiles from anyone who has dined at these fabled establishments.

As west as metropolitan Los Angeles's trendy Westside gets, Santa Monica has enjoyed a colorful history as both a resort community and a bedrock hometown on the Southern California coast. As a playground and ready-made set for Hollywood, traditional hotbed of progressive politics, and amorphous fun zone for a greater century of visitors, the city of Santa Monica has remained at the forefront of the evolution of California culture. Prior to World War II, Santa Monica was a collection of distinct neighborhoods--Santa Monica Canyon and Ocean Park among them--and its pier, built in 1909 beneath the bluffs of Palisades Park, became a regional draw, especially after the nation's largest dance emporium, La Monica Ballroom, was built on it. The vintage photographs in this tour through Santa Monica's beginnings and its growth through the early 20th century were selected from the archives of the Santa Monica Historical Society Museum.
