This book is a celebration of dining out, and I bought it for a foodie friend, who was utterly delighted by it.
That said, this book feels like a set of reviews fashioned into a gastronomic journey rather than a solid book with plenty of added food details. He eats at all the top places in the World and often his narrative seems like just an excuse to go on to the next venue rather than a passionate need to explore the unknown pleasures of the city he visits (pleasures he is already well acquainted with one feels).
The writing as usual is good and it's an easy to pick up hard to put down type of book. The point lost is for the structure, that is a little too obvious.
