Product Details

Praise

“This book is a must.”
–The New York Times

Hotel Splendide, Bemelmans’s 1941, out-of-print memoir, which is being reissued by Pushkin Press this month, is a delightful passport to a long-lost era
–Air Mail

“The original bad boy of the New York restaurant/hotel underbelly. Bemelmans is always funny, insightful and dead on target.”
–Anthony Bourdain


“Freshness and vitality…wit, humor, pathos, and the inimitable Bemelmans’ touch.”
–Kirkus Reviews

“The kitchen memoir to end them all.”
–Slightly Foxed
