Marilyn Giorgettiabout this book: San Francisco's legendary Iron Horse restaurant comes to life in this nostalgic behind-the-doors look from 1954 to 1973. We enter into a world of fun, food and fashion and meet the extraordinary staff (including the aide de camp to General Douglas MacArthur), that made The Horse the place to be and to be seen. The pulsing energy of standing-room-only crowds and spontaneous visits from notable celebrities such as Liberace, Sammy Davis Jr., and Lou Rawls were a way of life at The Horse.
The diverse clientele and the antics of the Inner Circle, a group of colorful regulars,are only part of this delightful tale and it was not unusual to see the likes of Joe DiMaggio dispensing life's lessons in a corner booth or Maria Callas jokingly serving salad to a surprised and delighted crowd.
Interspersed throughout is the touching story of the Giorgetti family from its roots in Italy where Frederico and Maria's poignant and heart-warming love was born. to their trials and triumphs in the sleepy coastal community of Half Moon Bay,California.
