Lost Restaurants of Miami

(History Press, $21.99)

Sunday, December 11, 2 PM | IN-PERSON at Books & Books, Coral Gables


Books & Books is excited to present an afternoon with Seth Bramson as he discusses his book, Lost Restaurants of Miami.


Are you hungry? Do you miss Greater Miami’s wonderful dining spots? Do you have really fond memories of the great places we used to dine—and eat!—at!

We certainly hope so, because you won’t want to miss our Sunday, December 11th event when our speaker and presenter and our long time friend, Barry University Adjunct Professor of History and Historian in Residence, Seth H. Bramson, will not only tell us about the history of the food and beverage business in Greater Miami, but will present some of the marvelous memorabilia from The Bramson Archive dealing with the great days of dining in the past as he talks about his newest book, LOST RESTAURANTS of MIAMI and brings forth menus, photographs, china, silver and other items from those places which now exist only in our memories.

As some know, Seth is America’s senior collector of Miami memorabilia and Floridiana, and is, in addition, he is America’s single most published Florida history book author, LOST RESTAURANTS….being his 33rd!

We expect a large crowd, and since we will start promptly at 2:00 PM we do ask that you arrive early to be certain you have a seat, and, also, please remember to turn off all electronic devices when you come in.

What a “tour” of Greater Miami’s clubs and restaurants this will be, and you won’t want to miss it!

***Please note: This event will take place at the Books & Books in Coral Gables at 265 Aragon Ave. Tickets are FREE and books will be available for purchase at the event.

About the Book:

Tucked around a corner or soaking up the spotlight, Miami’s restaurants defend an international reputation for superb cuisine and service. The constant buzz of new arrivals to the city’s glamorous food scene often obscures the memory of the celebrated culinary institutions that have closed their doors. Here author Seth Bramson recounts the life–and the often untimely passing–of coffee shops, steakhouses and every level, kind and type of restaurant in between. This joyous look at bygone eateries serves up course after course of beloved fare, from the likes of Jahn’s in Coral Gables to Red Diamond in Miami, Pumpernik’s on Miami Beach and Rascal House in Sunny Isles.


About the Author:

Seth H. Bramson has written 33 books on and about Florida history, 21 of which have been published by Arcadia Publishing and The History Press. A lifelong Miamian, he is America’s senior collector of Florida East Coast Railway, Florida transportation, and Miami memorabilia as well as Floridiana. He is America’s single most-published Florida history book author.
