My only quibbles with the book are that it's a little dated (maybe there's a newer edition?) and some of the prose is a little too "precious". As much as I respect Wolfgang Puck the book spends wayyyyyy too much space on his plethora of restaurants.
Still, this is a great book! Highly recommended to anyone setting out open a new restaurant.
Before I could turn back, the lease was signed, money was coming in...there was no escape. I was pretty terrified.
I decided to learn everything I could about design, management, success' and failures. The principal way I did this was to order an armada of books about the business. In all I think I bought roughly 20 books. Most of them were somewhat helpful, but none of them approached the value of this fine book.
Chronicling almost 3 dozen successful cases from such diverse business' as China Grill and Farallon, every aspect of the business is covered - design, capitalization, management organization, revenue and profit - FANTASTIC.
I can't recommend this book any higher. It was an enormous help to me in putting my new restaurant together.
