"The Daily Meal
" A collection of more than 100 recipes, the cookbook is grand in scale and contains pages and pages of beautiful photography it would look just as good on your coffee table as it does in your kitchen, but we recommend you cook with it.

With over 100 comfort dishes such as apple honey caramel glazed doughnut holes, foodies can explore the favorite foods of industry professionals.
"Minneapolis Star Tribune
" The beautifully produced book takes readers into the kitchens of 25 restaurants, telling stories and sharing recipes.
"Food Republic
" The book features the recipes from some of the most memorable staff meals served at these famed establishments, and since the dishes are made to feed hungry kitchen personnel at amazing restaurants, they tend to be super-tasty and pretty quick to execute.
"Cool Hunting
" By and large, the recipes are characterized by large yields, modest presentation and rich flavors. The aim of each dish is to please the one standard that truly matters to a line cook: taste.
"Tasting Table
" "Come In, We're Closed" is certainly not the first cookbook to cover the restaurant ritual of the staff meal; it is, however, the best.
"Mission: Food

"LA Weekly
" "Come In, We're Closed: An Invitation to Staff Meals at the World's Best Restaurants" by Christine Carroll and Jody Eddy is a coffee table-worthy title (part chef interviews, part recipes, loads of gorgeous photographs).
"Associated Press" Contains recipes fit for many based on the good eats for the "families" of a variety around the country.
"New York Times
" There have been plenty of "staff meal" cookbooks, but not one that conveys the teamwork that goes into great restaurants nor one with such alluring photographs.
Shelf Awareness
The authors have collected staff meals from restaurants in America and Europe, where the communal suppers look really good. "
