It's been awhile since I posted a card featuring streamline architecture...so here you go. The Beachcomber in Clearwater Beach, Florida is the place, and the menu is famous for the "Back-to-the-Farm Fried Chicken Dinner." I wonder if that's a precursor to "farm-to-table" restaurants of today!
Have a rough New Year's Eve? The Bird-in-Hand Restaurant features a "Hangover Breakfast" for only 50 cents. It consists of Tomato Juice, Two Raw Eggs, Dry Toast, Black Coffee, Aspirin, and "Our Sympathy." Billed as being "For the Morning After the Night Before," I'm sure this menu item caught the attention of many a NYC partier back in the day.
The Bird-in-Hand Restaurant was located at 1659 Broadway, between 51st & 52 Streets. It would have been fun to stop there after spending New Year's Eve in Times' Square for a late night breakfast!
Happy New Year to my regular readers and newcomers!
