About the Author

William Sitwell is one of Britain's leading food writers. He is restaurant critic for The Telegraph, a frequent presenter and guest on TV and radio and one of the long-standing critics on the hit BBC show MasterChef. He also entertains diners with William Sitwell's Supper Club, providing exceptional food in extraordinary locations.


'Fascinating and often counterintuitive' -- Michael Hodges * Radio Times *
'William Sitwell has the palate of a great chef, the honesty of a high court judge and he holds the pen of P.G.Wodehouse' -- Marco Pierre White
'A warm-hearted romp through the history of eating out... This wide-ranging literary feast is particularly apposite at a time when many of us are noticing how much money we're saving by not eating out.' -- Ysenda Maxtone Graham * The Times *
'As tales of saucepan-throwing, cocaine-snorting chefs attest, restaurants revel in drama and excitement... Always well-informed, never dull.' -- Andrew Lycett * Mail on Sunday *
'An immensely engaging guide ... Sitwell never takes himself too seriously. As Dr Johnson declared, "There is nothing... by which so much happiness is produced, as by a good tavern or inn," and it is bittersweet to enjoy it here vicariously.' -- Robert Eustace * Daily Telegraph *
'Beautifully timed to keep your favourite dishes fresh in your mind and get you planning for how and where you're going to indulge when the lockdown finally ends... About as close as you can get to the fun of eating out right now. Sitwell is a witty writer who understands the need to entertain... I found this book more entertaining than many a restaurant meal and it's something to keep us going until everything reopens.' -- Richard Vines * Bloomberg *
'The Restaurant: A History of Eating Out is a story of life. A must read for anyone interested in food or history.' * SLMAG *
'Supremely readable' -- Annie Gray * Spectator *
