William Sitwell reflects on the history and future of eating out

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 14 July 2020

Most of us took for granted the joy of sitting down for a meal in a restaurant surrounded by the buzz of conversation and eating something new and delicious prepared by someone else who also does the dishes. Food critic William Sitwell reflects on the long tradition of this culinary experience and its future in a Covid 19 world in his new book, The Restaurant: A History of Eating Out.
