Flash in the Pan. The Life and Death of an American Restaurant.

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1992.

Octavo, 302 pages. First edition of this important chronicle of the high-spirited opening and subsequent rapid decline and extinction of a New York City restaurant at the end of the Go-Go Eighties. Blum portrays a restaurant that seemingly had everything: celebrity investors, a trendy location, hot waitresses and A-list clientelle. But things just don't work out. Fine in a fine dust jacket.
