Join Rick Browne, best-selling author, host, and producer of Barbecue America, on a pilgrimage to 100 of the oldest and most historic restaurants in America, with interesting profiles of each restaurant, recipes for their signature dishes, and hundreds of photographs that make you feel like you have a seat at the table.

Come along on a pilgrimage to some of the oldest and most historic restaurants in America in A Century of Restaurants. Each is special not only because of its longevity but also for its historic significance, interesting stories, and, of course, its wonderful food. The oldest Japanese restaurant in the country is profiled, along with stagecoach stops, elegant eateries, barbecue joints, hamburger shops, cafes, bars and grills, and two dueling restaurants that both claim to have invented the French dip sandwich.

Rick Browne, best-selling author, host, and producer of Barbecue America, has traveled to 100 of the oldest restaurants across America to share the charm, history, and appeal that made these establishments successful for 100 years or more. Some are as many as 300 years old. Each profile contains a famous recipe, the history of the restaurant, a look at the restaurant today, mouthwatering descriptions of some of its signature dishes, fun facts that make each place unique, and hundreds of beautiful photos that capture the spirit of each establishment. It's everything you need for an armchair tour of 100 historic restaurants that have made America great.

Rick Browne is the creator, host, and executive producer of public television's popular Barbecue America series, a cooking/travelogue show highlighting America's outdoor culinary landscapes. He has authored many cookbooks and produced illustrated coffee table books on Hong Kong, Thailand, and Las Vegas. His expertise on all things cooking has made him a frequent and popular radio talk-show guest, a featured guest on many TV network morning shows (Live! with Regis and Kelly, Today, Fox & Friends, CBS's The Early Show), the resident barbecue guru on fiery-foods.com, and a regular contributor of articles and photography to the world's leading food, wine, and travel magazines.
