The Italian restaurant WAS Christiano's in Sysosset. The song revolves around fictional characters in BILLY JOEL'S HOMETOWN. The first movement is "Our Italian Restaurant", followed by "Things are Okay", then "The Ballad of Brenda and Eddie", and finally a reprise of "Our Italian Restaurant. Each section has a distict rhythm and tune - they could each stand on their own as a song. Joel shows his skill as a musician (as well as his skill as a songwriter) here.

The waiters from the restaurant below had whisked aloft the delectable dinner. The dining table, laid for two, glowed cheerily in the glow of the pink-shaded candles. And now Phillips, as though he ushered a cardinal – or held in charge a burglar – wafted in the shivering guest who had been haled from the line of mendicant lodgers. It is a common thing to call such men wrecks; if the comparison be used here it is the specific one of a derelict come to grief through fire. I had a knack of bringing out in the face of a portrait the hidden character of the original. I don't know how I did it – I painted what I saw – but I know it did me.

A RECIPE FOR HILARITY. A door whore in restaurant lingo, refers to the woman who greets you upon entering a dining establishment. However, Ivy Zingara is not just any bimbo smiling behind a podium; she is the brains and passion, the very heart and soul of Sentimento a four star fine-dining restaurant. Ivy, the protagonist, possessing no prior restaurant knowledge, dives into creating a restaurant as a total novice and experiences numerous obstacles from misogynistic fire and building inspectors to vacuous employees. She hires a lunatic chef and an eccentric staff of dipsomaniacs, yet still manages to create an incredibly successful dining venue that the glitterati of New Jersey love to frequent. The Door Whore is a glimpse into the comedy, drama and everyday insanity that goes on behind the scenes in every restaurant on a daily basis.

I started reading this book yesterday and finished it this morning.
I couldn't put it down. I am so sorry I missed Fern Esposito at the book signing in Holmdel. I would have loved it if I had my book signed by her.
I didn't find it funny but informative about what goes on behind the scenes in restaurants. It was clearly written and you imagined yourself doing and experiencing the daily drama. She is a clever author with spunk. I can't wait to read her next book. I highly recommend this book.

The Door Whore is laugh-out-loud funny. It is also full of raw obscenities, crude innuendos and situations that are so bizarre they were probably true.

Fern Esposito, a former restaurant owner, has taken much of what she gleaned as a novice restaurateur and formulated a book that reads like a memoir. The main character, Ivy Zingara, says in the opening line that she is the "door whore." She then goes on to explain a term that is probably not familiar to anyone outside of the restaurant business. A "door whore" is the person - usually an attractive woman, who greets the guests at the podium of classy dining establishments. It is a derogatory term that the kitchen staff may use among themselves or to her face. I had never heard this particular phrase used before, but I have never worked in a restaurant.

Ivy is also the owner and brains behind Sentimento, the Italian restaurant in Summit, New Jersey where the story takes place. She gets the idea to open a place of her own and proceeds to do so - without any background in the business. She hires a longtime acquaintance as her chief chef and then watches in amazement as a formerly nice guy turns into a raving schizophrenic with a huge streak of verbal cruelty. He is also as vulgar as the day is long.

Esposito makes the episodes of near disaster and chaos hilariously amusing. Yet if true to life, it would certainly be a caution against jumping into the restaurant business on a whim and a stash of good recipes.

One of the more intriguing sections of the book defines various bits of restaurant terminology - phrases the customer is unlikely to hear. These include: Flip time- a list of seating assignments and pertinent info given to the employees before the dinner service starts- including, but not only the times of the first and second seatings for a table; Nazi list - a list of chronic "no-show" customers and very difficult or disruptive diners.

This is a fun book. But it does require the caution - the language is frequently riddled with obscenities.
