Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book expresses the rich and fabled history of Le Cirque and shares intricate stories of the restaurant's beginning and its success. Countless famous attendees are also included in this glamour filled tale of an iconic eatery." ~The Society Diaries

“For those who can’t afford the menu prices or prefer to wait for the kitchen to right itself, this coffee-table book by Le Cirque’s 80 year-old creator, offers a mouthwatering peek behind the curtains of a restaurant that has maintained its cachet since 1974.” ~the New York Times
 
“…should be required reading for anyone who has ever dined at Le Cirque or dreamt of doing so. Page through the first part of the book and you’ll be dazzled and delighted by the photos and stories…what a gift book this would make for anyone loving the art of dining and the art of living well.” ~Virtual Gourmet

"It is the first book to chronicle the fascinating stories, fabled history, the glitz and glamour, and the iconic recipes from the restaurant that is synonymous with luxury.There are hundreds of photographs and drawings, and they all represent a visual history of the world inside the tent (some of them captured by The New York Times society photographer Bill Cunningham who posted himself, in rain or shine, in front of the entrance to capture the comings and goings." ~Highendweekly.com

"...recipes and stories behind some of the 37-year-old Upper East Side restaurant’s most iconic culinary inventions and tells how they’ve been served to everyone from kings to presidents to Hollywood celebrities — by a multitude of well-known chefs.." ~New York Post

OK, I'm a sucker for reading about the rich and how they live so of course I had to get this book. Le Cirque was THE place to eat, to see, and be seen by the New York glitterati. This book is big and heavy and contains the story of how Sirio Maccioni got into the restaurant business, how Le Cirque started, who went there, and interesting back-stories/anecdotes about the guests. The last 1/4 of the book contains wonderful and interesting recipes (with great photos) from the restaurant. This book contains LOTS of photos of famous people; also of the restaurant; and of course those recipes.

This is a beautiful cookbook that really captures a very important slice of food history. The first half of the book gives a glimpse through word and image into the glitterati who dines at New York's famous eatery and the second half shares some of Le Cirque's beloved recipes along with anecdotes from the celebrity chefs who graced its kitchens. I love that the recipes have been written for home cooks and friends are very impressed when I serve recipes from the book. It's a perfect gift for anyone who has eaten at Le Cirque or loves reading food and social history.

As a long time patron of Le Cirque and its several venues reading this book is a trip down memory lane. It's nice to learn more about Sirio, and to get some of our favorite recipes as a bonus. A must addition to the library of anyone who loves good food and wine provided by one of the masters of the art and craft.
