Event Details

A lyrical feast written by Romney (Nani) Steele, the owners’ granddaughter, who grew up at the restaurant, My Nepenthe is as much about a family enterprise as it is about the Fassett family and their legacy. It recounts stories about the family’s more than sixty-year history on the coast, the arts and architecture, and the colorful people who were the genesis of this legendary restaurant. Steele describes the restaurant’s vibrant past as a gathering place and noted bohemian haunt, and its foray into the film industry during the shooting of The Sandpiper, featuring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. She also explores the lively scene that played out into the 70s and onward through the current decade.

My Nepenthe includes more than seventy-five special recipes from the Fassetts, the restaurant, and the café, along with spectacular photography that completes the tale.
