Bern's-Rare & Well Done
Regular price $49.99
Debatably the most fabled restaurant in Florida, Bern's Steak House is the subject of a new book with nearly the heft of its notoriously doorstop-sized wine list (said to be the largest in the world). A previous book on the restaurant was released in 2002, the year of founder Bern Laxer's untimely death, but Bern's: Rare & Well Done makes it clear that the Laxer legacy has been nurtured and maintained by current owners David and Christina Laxer. Written in collaboration with Chris Sherman, former food critic for the Tampa Bay Times, the book unspools chronologically, with great old black-and-white family photos from the restaurant's early years, as well as behind-the-scenes shots of the restaurant's metal shop, coffee roasting facility and sewing room.
