Classic restaurants of Montgomery  Cover Image Book Book

Classic restaurants of Montgomery / Karren Pell and Carole King.

Pell, Karren, 1948- (author.). King, Carole A., (author.).


"Montgomery has a fun and fascinating assortment of restaurants dating back more than two hundred years. Some landmark dining establishments, like Fleming's, are gone, but others, like Chris' Hot Dogs, are still serving their signature dishes. Such notable figures as Hank Williams, Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald, Elvis, Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. have all enjoyed delicious meals in Montgomery. Traditional favorites such as Pop's 'Shake Ice,' the Parkmore's Chicken in a Basket and the Elite's Trout Almondine now take their place alongside new offerings like Chef Eric Rivera's 'Blended Burger.' Local authors Karren Pell and Carole King reveal the culinary treats and the colorful personalities behind the best restaurants in the city." -- From publisher's description.
