Neiman Marcus Cooks

When Herbert Marcus Sr. became frustrated with the dining options in downtown Dallas, home of the flagship Neiman Marcus department store he co-founded in the early 1900s, his son Stanley hired a cook to make lunch for his dad in a small room on the building’s top floor. It was the late 1940s and Marcus Sr. would invite vendors and other guests to join him. When he died in 1950, Stanley, now president and CEO of the store, remodelled and expanded the business, and opened a full-service restaurant for customers. It was the first of 43 across the US to come and led to 2003's Neiman Marcus Cooks, which was recently revised and rereleased by Rizzoli. Compiled by the vice president of Neiman Marcus Restaurants, chef Kevin Garvin, it contains all the classics, but also debuts new delights your own guests will love. Here are our picks for the season.
