Flash in the Pan. The Life and Death of an American Restaurant.
New York: Simon & Schuster, 1992.
Octavo (24 x 16 cm.), 302 pages. FIRST EDITION. A 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. A portrayal of a restaurant that seemingly had everything: celebrity investors, a trendy location, hot waitresses and A-list clientelle. But things didn't work out as expected. Fine in publisher's cloth, in a near fine dust jacket.
