Summary:
Freedman reveals how the history of our restaurants reflects nothing less than the history of America itself. Whether charting the rise of our love affair with Chinese food through San Francisco's fabled The Mandarin or evoking the richness of Italian food through Mamma Leone's, he uses each restaurant to tell a wider story of race and class, immigration and assimilation.
