Under Michael's leadership, Union Square Cafe has been ranked Most Popular in New York City Zagat surveys for a record seven years.

Reviews

"Danny Meyer, restaurateur nonpareil, shares his never-fail recipe for business success." -- Vanity Fair"Restaurateur Danny Meyer offers a rich menu of business tips." -- Time magazine"Anyone in the hospitality industry would do well to consult 'Setting the Table'." -- Wall Street Journal

Meyer is known to foodies as the man behind 11 acclaimed restaurants in New York City, including Union Square Caf? and Gramercy Tavern. While that would be more than enough professional accomplishment for most people, apparently Meyer has had time enough on his hands to branch out into writing as well. Anyone who has started or maintained a business will have strong ideas about the best way to run things, and Meyer is no exception. While such chapter headings as "The 51 Percent Solution" and "Constant, Gentle Pressure" evoke the all-too-common themes of most leadership books, this book is something more. It is actually the story of Meyer's restaurant empire and how he got to where he is today, overlaid with his own views on management and what has worked for him. A fun and enjoyable read, it provides a good behind-the-scenes view of the restaurant business, though it's more autobiography than business how-to. Recommended for libraries with strong cookery or business collections.-Susan Hurst, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
