The remarkable story of a restaurant on top of the world—built by a legend, destroyed in tragedy—and an era in New York City it helped to frame in the 1970s, new York City was plagued by crime, filth, and an ineffective government. The city was falling apart, and even the newly constructed world trade center threatened to be a fiasco. But in April 1976, a quarter-mile up on the 107th floor of the North Tower, a new restaurant called Windows on the world opened its doors—a glittering sign that new York wasn’t done just yet. In the most spectacular restaurant in the world, journalist Tom roston tells the complete history of this incredible restaurant, from its stunning $14-million opening to 9/11 and its tragic end. There are stories of the people behind it, such as Joe baum, the celebrated restaurateur, who was said to be the only man who could outspend an unlimited budget; the well-tipped waiters; and the cavalcade of famous guests, as well as everyday people celebrating the key moments in their lives. Roston also charts the changes in American food, from baroque and theatrical to locally sources and Organic. Built on more than 200 original interviews, the most spectacular restaurant in the world is the story of new York city’s restaurant culture and the quintessential American drive to succeed.
