The Art of the Restaurateur

Nicholas Lander


Everything you ever wanted to know about the highs and lows of the restaurant business are charted in Nicholas Lander’s The Art of the Restaurateur. Lander was joined by Russell Norman of Polpo restaurants and Jewish-style deli Mishkin’s to discuss what goes into great dining out at the world’s landmark restaurants.

For everyone who’s into food and anyone who has ever dreamed of opening their own restaurant. This was a discussion about cookery, choosing the right chef and deciding what to serve, table service and survival in the restaurant business.
