I was looking though cookbooks this morning for a dessert recipe for Mom's Day (I ended up with strawberry shortcakes with a vanilla-orange sauce and whipped cream, very nice) and this menu fell out.
I bought it a few years ago at a junk shop -- oops, I mean "antique store.". I just loved the cheesy graphics and, of course, the prices.
Here is the cover.
And the wonderfully compact wine list:
Gosh, I do wonder what sparkling burgundy tasted like!
And then a section with tonight's specials and prices. Everything seemed to be about $3, but a Sirloin Steak would set you back almost $6 in June, 1959. I still think that's too much to pay for a steak. I guess that's another reason why I'm a vegetarian.
