About Tables from the Rubble

 

TABLES FROM THE RUBBLE transports readers to San Francisco in the years just after the Great Earthquake of 1906. Amid the ruins, restaurants rose to feed the hungry and lead the recovery. Today, a handful of the restaurants that opened in those boom years remain – some still serving customers in the same spaces where they first opened, offering food and drinks with a direct link to a century-old past. TABLES FROM THE RUBBLE tells the stories of restaurants like Swan Oyster Depot, Liguria Bakery, Comstock Saloon, the Palace Hotel, the House of Shields, John’s Grill and Schroeder’s. And it follows the journey of Chinatown’s Sam Wo, which was saved by the hard work of one family and an entire community committed to the historic restaurant’s legacy.
