This book contains 250 colour and black+white photographs, illustrations and collages with over 15,000 words by Anthony Haden-Guest, Bob Colacello, Candice Bushnell, Glen O'Brien, Jay McInerny, Kim Hastreiter, Tama Janowitz among many others. Few restaurants last long in the fickle world of New York City restaurants, let alone establish an image of chic sophistication that Indochine has maintained for the past 25 years. At Indochine, celebrities rub elbows with downtown hipsters, uptown moguls with East village club kids and fashion designers with artists and gallery owners. Indochine mixes vintage photographs of the 80's and 90's with collages, polaroids and portraits of regulars and celebrities from its exclusive private parties. Also included are renderings of the signature Indochine leaves by artists who started their careers in the eighties, including Ruben Toledo. Images are mixed along with personal essays and recollections of frequent guests by both known and unknown writers. As well as handwritten notes and poems by celebrities that were to become the restaurant's fixtures. Indochine continues to be a beacon of downtown chic, with the children of the scene-makers from the eighties now quickly becoming the new kids on the block, and Indochine's new customers
