About the Film

JEREMIAH TOWER: THE LAST MAGNIFICENT explores the remarkable life of one of the most controversial and influential figures in American gastronomy. After beginning his career at the renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley in 1972, Jeremiah Tower launched the legendary Stars Restaurant in San Francisco, an overnight sensation that soon became one of Americas top-grossing restaurants. After disappearing from the scene for nearly two decades, Tower surprisingly resurfaced at New York Citys fabled but troubled Tavern on the Green, where he launched a journey of artistic and professional self-discovery. Featuring interviews by Anthony Bourdain, Ruth Reichl, and Martha Stewart, this delicious documentary tells the story of a man whose brash personality and culinary genius has made him a living legend.
