Rao's is the legendary, tiny corner restaurant in East Harlem where it's impossible to book a table: each of the red-checked, cloth-covered four-, six-, and two-tops is reserved for a titan of New York industry, a celebrity, or a major politician. Permanently. Now Frank Pellegrino, the third generation of his family to operate the impossible-to-get-into Rao's restaurant and founder of Rao's food products line, goes deep into the history of his family, the restaurant, and America's love affair with Southern Italian cooking to create Rao's biggest, best Italian cookbook yet.
