Shaw has written a book to be appreciated by people who enjoy dining out (as opposed to grabbing a bite to eat at the nearest McDonalds). Using his knowledge of the food industry, he treats the reader to an inside look at restaurants, what makes them work, how the food appears on the table, and even some guesses about the future of dining in America.
Most of his references are to places in New York City, but the process is repeated in most places, so we can use what we take for Turning the Tables to our own areas. I didn't realize that I had applied some of his "rules" for how to get a good table and service to the places we ate in my small home town.
An engaging and thought-provoking book about an activity we can all indulge in.
