Lost Restaurants of Miami with Seth Bramson



Join the Cornell Club of Miami and the Florida Keys for an exciting journey of  Lost Restaurants of Miami presented by thier long time member, Hotelie Seth Bramson '69.  Seth's latest book, the first-ever history of the restaurants and clubs of Greater Miami, has just been published by The History Press of Charleston.


With heavy stock, full color, glossy covers, 144 pages and 121 photographs of restaurants from every part of Dade County, the book will bring warm smiles- and, in some cases, tears of joy-to the reader.  Beginning with two chapters on Miami, it moves across the bay to Miami Beach, North Bay Village, 33154, Haulover Beach and Sunny Isles (Beach) and then back to the mainland to Miami Shores, North Miami, North Miami Beach and Aventura. From there, the food journey goes west to Hialeah, Miami Springs, Miami Lakes and Opa Locka, after which, it moves south to Coral Gables and South Miami and then down US One to Homestead and Florida City.


Although Seth was limited to 121 photos and couldn’t show every great restaurant and club that existed, he named at least 150 more food and beverage or club operations. Many of them, from casual dining spots and delis to sophisticated, elegant service, and fine food operations, will bring back warm memories of tastes and fragrances which we loved then and still  remember now.
