The Cedars Social was pretty perfect as a book club spot. The atmosphere is great--something like upscale hipster, and the cocktails are delicious. The food was satisfying too. Our favorite appetizer was the blistered shishito peppers with sea salt and charred lemon. The truffle mac and cheese is not all it's cried up to be, but everything else was to our liking. Watch out that you don't miss the place since there's no sign outside, and this isn't a place you want to miss.
Disclaimer: The characters and events in this book don't turn out to be very interesting. There are many positive reviews of this one on Goodreads, but don't believe them. Knight's novel taps into the mystery/thriller genre, and it does build some good tension. The style of narration, which shifts perspectives between the protagonist and her stalker-biographer, is compelling. Hence, the book is incredibly easy to read through, so I assume the positive reviews are from those who love page-turners simply for being easy. The problem with this book is a certain insipid/lazy plot device used as the "big reveal" at the end. I won't spoil it here, but I was incredibly disappointed. I can't recommend this one.
