Any of you ever read Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain?  I'm about 3/4ths of the way through, it's one of the best books I've ever read.  It's a look into the sub-culture of professional kitchens, some of it is disturbing (don't eat fish on monday, don't order mussels, and don't ask for meat well-done), but mostly it's hysterical.

I've read it and loved it.  Afterwards I read the Ruth Reichl book about being a food critic in New York.  Then I read the one written by a waitress who was there when the 4-star Per Se opened in NY ("Service Included").  It was great reading all 3 perspectives from the NY dining scene.
