"Sardi's: The Story of a Famous Restaurant"$90.00
In the heart of New York's Theater District, Sardi's has been the toast of Broadway for 82 years, a pre- and post-theater hang-out, as well as a location for opening night parties. Vincent Sardi, a theater lover, kept the restaurant open much later than others in the area to accommodate the schedules of Broadway performers. During a typical dinner at Sardi's you might have enjoyed canapes with Marlene Dietrich, soup with Ethel Merman, your entree served next to Rex Harrison, and salad elbow-rubbed by Marilyn Monroe.
In this remarkable book, meet Vincent Sardi, the Italian emigrant who, as he understood and sympathized with theatrical people and their eccentricities, endeared himself to them and everyone who loves the theater. His autobiography is warm, humorous, and romantic. It reveals monumental practical jokes and stunts, some embarrassing incidents, and stories of how plays have been conceived, financed, and cast at Sardi's tables. Includes 30 recipes of famous Sardi dishes. Previously-owned 1953 First Edition.
