Dishing It Out: In Search of the Restaurant Experience
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Languages, Department of English.

Abstract [en]

From the hamburger haven to the temple of gastronomy, the restaurant is a fixture of modern life. But why is that so? What needs has the restaurant come to satisfy, and what needs has it come to impose upon the experience of the modern world? In Dishing It Out, Robert Appelbaum travels around America and Europe and through the annals of literature and history to explore the social meaning of the restaurant – and to discover what we ought to be asking of the restaurant experience today.
