"On a cold, clear night in March 1990, a new, hip-hop-happening downtown restaurant in New York City opened its doors, and in poured a mob of revelers desperate to kick off a new decade in style." "There was just one problem." "The eighties were over." "Flash in the Pan tells the story of how The Falls became the hottest restaurant in town - the place to find leggy models, famous actors, and assorted beautiful people - and how it struggled, and failed, to survive the economic nightmare known as the 1990s. We follow the restaurant from two entrepreneurs' dream to create the ultimate New York restaurant - from The Falls' wild initial success to the increasingly deserted nights that led to its shutdown. Along the way we meet classic fixtures of New York nightlife, from Victoria's Secret models to unemployed actor-bartenders, and witness everything from glamorous movie-wrap parties to the New York City produce-loading docks at 3:30 A.M." "If you've ever wondered what goes on in a restaurant behind the closed doors of the kitchen, after the last customer has eaten, or when it's four hours to opening night and there's no liquor license, then Flash in the Pan will amaze and amuse you. From menu creation to avoiding creditors, Flash in the Pan offers an intimate look into a world that everyone inhabits but few really know - set in the fickle, fashionable nightlife of New York City."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The topic of this book was fascinating, but the style was very tough to slog through. I only made it halfway through the book before I couldn't take it anymore. It's written with the same style as a voice-over in a crime re-enactment. It's a true story, but it's written in the present tense which I find very odd. I wouldn't recommend it. ( )
