A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage


In this funny, frank, and tender memoir, the author of the NewYork Times bestseller A Homemade Life and the blog Orangette recounts how opening arestaurant sparked the first crisis of her young marriage.

When Molly Wizenberg married Brandon Pettit, he was atrained composer with a handful of offbeat interests: espresso machines, woodenboats, violin-building, and ice cream–making. So when Brandon decided to open apizza restaurant, Molly was supportive—not because she wanted him to do it butbecause the idea was so far-fetched she didn’t think he would. Before she knewit, he’d signed a lease on a space. The restaurant, Delancey, was going to be areality, and all of Molly’s assumptions about her marriage were about tochange.

Together they built Delancey: gutting and renovating thespace on a cobbled-together budget, developing a menu, hiring staff, andpassing inspections. Delancey became a success, and Molly tried to convinceherself that she was happy in their new life until—in the heat and pressure ofthe restaurant kitchen—she realized that she hadn’t been honest with herself orBrandon.

With evocative photos by Molly and twenty new recipes forthe kind of simple, delicious food that chefs eat at home, Delancey is amoving and honest account of two young people learning to give in and let go inorder to grow together.
