Phaidon Partners with OpenTable to Bring its Popular Books to Life

Phaidon, leading publisher of the creative arts, today announced that it has partnered with OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations to bring two books to life – Where Chefs Eat: A Guide to Chefs’ Favorite Restaurants and the forthcoming Signature Dishes That Matter. The multi-faceted partnership includes a digital experience and an in-restaurant dinner series. 

Who better to recommend a restaurant than a chef? Inspired by Phaidon’s bestselling guide, Where Chefs Eat ($35 USD), diners will now be able to reserve tables and dine at restaurants selected by the world’s best chefs on 4 continents, across 8 countries and 26 cities only on OpenTable. Where Chefs Eat is the true insider’s guide to the best places to eat around the world, from breakfast spots to high-end restaurants. The 352 restaurant guide includes favorites from Tokyo to Los Angeles, Mexico City to Berlin, and New York to Hong Kong, and is now fully accessible on OpenTable.

The Signature Dishes Dinner Series 

On October 23 Phaidon will publish Signature Dishes That Matter ($59.95 USD), a global celebration of restaurant dishes that have defined the course of culinary history, told through the most iconic dishes from the past 300 years. The landmark cookbook features over 240 dishes and nearly 200 recipes, making it a fascinating cultural history of dining out. Short texts provide the origin stories on dishes like Peach Melba, Pizza Margherita, Caesar Salad, and Black Cod with Miso.

Phaidon and OpenTable are partnering with restaurants across the United States to offer diners an opportunity to taste signature dishes prepared by the leading chefs in the country. The four-city dinner series will take place this fall in tandem with the publication of Signature Dishes That Matter.
