Tucked around a corner or soaking up the spotlight, Miami's restaurants defend an international reputation for superb cuisine and service. The constant buzz of new arrivals to the city's glamorous food scene often obscures the memory of the celebrated culinary institutions that have closed their doors.
Here author Seth Bramson recounts the life--and the often untimely passing--of coffee shops, steakhouses and every level, kind and type of restaurant in between. This joyous look at bygone eateries serves up course after course of beloved fare, from the likes of Jahn's in Coral Gables to Red Diamond in Miami, Pumpernik's on Miami Beach and Rascal House in Sunny Isles.
Seth H. Bramson has written thirty-three books on and about Florida history, twenty-two of which have been published by Arcadia Publishing and The History Press.
A lifelong Miamian, he is America's senior collector of Florida East Coast Railway, Florida transportation and Miami memorabilia as well as Floridiana. He is America's single most published Florida history book author.
