In the new millennium, American dining underwent a resurgence that may have peaked. Chefs rediscovered obscure ingredients, bartenders reincarnated classic cocktails and food trucks served gourmet fare. Every detail became a big thing: cheeseburgers, hot sauce, pizza, coffee, exotic cuisines, ramen stalls, craft breweries and small distilleries. Food journalist Kevin Alexander (writing before COVID-19 wreaked havoc on the restaurant industry) chronicles this era with wit and insight, tracing trailblazing chefs and restaurateurs who redrew the culinary landscape.
