    Book Description
    From Publishers Weekly
    In her culinary guide, Miller, a freelance writer living in Florence, begins with the basics, noting the differences between a ristorante, osteria and trattoria; explaining the layout of the Italian menu ("With few variations, Florentine menus follow a standard order"); and sharing her thoughts on waiters and tipping ("Remember, no one is working toward a tip"). From there, Miller offers an introduction to Tuscan wines, and then organizes her listings in chapters such as "Restaurants and Trattorias," "International Food," and "Coffee, Pastries, and Chocolate." For such Florentine specialties as bistecca fiorentina (a T-bone steak rubbed with olive oil, salt, lemon, and rosemary and served rare) she recommends a handful of restaurants throughout the city. She also notes where vegetarians can eat well and where to find kosher restaurants. This is a smart and useful tool for foodies passing time in Tuscany.

    Product Description:
    Over a million English-speaking visitors descend on Florence annually, but only the committed few venture beyond the usual circuit of tourist restaurants to experience authentic Tuscan cuisine. In researching THE FOOD LOVER'S GUIDE TO FLORENCE, Emily Wise Miller scoured the city's many neighborhoods, uncovering little-known restaurants, pizzerias, gelato shops, open-air markets, and wine bars. The result is a harvest of in-depth profiles of the spots Florentines themselves treasure. Engaging reviews and an easy-to-navigate format make this resource essential reading for travelers, students abroad, and the numerous expats living in Florence. Whether you are intent on dining in the best high-end restaurants or hunting down unforgettable ribollita and bistecca in one of the many bustling food stalls, THE FOOD LOVER'S GUIDE TO FLORENCE is your culinary passport to the city of the David.
