Junior's is much more than a diner; it is an experience, an urban retreat where good old-fashioned service still exists, where fantastic food is a guarantee, and where regulars and newcomers are all welcome. If you can't make it there in person, let Welcome to Junior's transport you there with words. --Naomi Gesinger

I'm finally just getting around to making the cheescake (tonight) and am sure that I will not be disappointed.
Get this book for a slice of fine Americana...
First, I'd like to complement the designer of the book. It's colorful, well organized and fun to read! Too often, cookbooks designed with 'style' become either hard to read or hard to find recipes within. This book has balance.
I didn't buy this book to cook from, I was more interested in the history of the restaurant. The story, beginning with Enduro in the pre-war years, is beautifully written and a joy to read. I've passed it around to several friends who enjoyed it as much as I have.
I've tried a number of the recipes and they are good, though not truly exceptional. I didn't find this surprising, as often restaurant recipes don't translate well to home cooking. Also, we can't discount the value of restaurant atmosphere. I'm certain an institution like Junior's can enhance a simple glass of milk with atmosphere!
And, no, the cheesecake recipe given in the book didn't impress me. I read in another review that this isn't the same as the one at the restaurant and I can believe that. It simply isn't anything special.
Regardless, this is a fun book, full of nostalgic good feelings, and I'm glad I bought it. Certainly, should I get up to Brooklyn, this restaurant will be one of my first stops!
The book is well designed and pleasing to look at. The recipes are simple to read, and they taste great. The book also offers a good deal of history and pictures of Brooklyn through out the ages. You don't need to be from this area to enjoy this book.
The recipes, however, are quite good. Not everything will appeal to everyone, but there is enough variety for all of us. Even simple items such as the blueberry muffins have just the right details that make them so much better than what you are probably eating on weekend mornings now! While there is a strong emphasis on baked goods, the entrees such as meat loaf and macaroni & cheese are not to be overlooked. They involve a step or two more than some of us are used to, but they evoke nostalgia & good eating no matter where you call home.
It's good food & good reading, all in one book!
