For nearly 80 years, Schrafft's was the place to meet and eat in city after city. It was the brain-child of a young candy drummer, Frank Shattuck, and turned him into a millionaire. In the New York area alone, there were more than 50 stores', as the restaurants were called. Celebrities were frequent customers, women lunched there every day and businessmen conferred over cocktails in the bar and grill rooms. It seems as if everybody who ate at Schrafft's has a story to tell - and readers will discover their stories, and more, in this delightful book.'
