The Best of Everything

By MYSTERY MUNCHER
Guest Columnist

The yellowing pages of
old scrap books hold a mul-
titude of memories. And
re-discovering menus, from
restaurants which have
faded away but never die
and are pasted in your mind
as well as in old scrapbooks,
is a step back into the past.
Stored away in my
memorabilia is a 1942 menu
from Hund's on Grand River
and Bagley. The special of
the day was whole broiled
baby lobster with drawn
buttei, mixed seafood with
tartar sauce, salad,
potatoes, rolls and butter
and coffee for the unbeliev-
able price of $1.60. Today,
the lobster , alone could cost
almost 10 times that much.
How can you beat a com-
plete dinner which included
Hund's special antipasto,
fresh jumbo shrimp
cocktail, garden vegetable
soup, chopped liver, Florida
fruit cup, double consomme
with egg drops or Rhode Is-
land clam chowder, salad,
frog legs Northwood Inn
style, a choice of potatoes,
Harvard beets or Michigan
corn on the cob, assorted
home-made pies, special
sundaes, watermelons or
Roquefort, Liederkranz or
Camembert cheese for
$1.80.
Steak with all the
trimmings was $2.20 and
Hund's special baked
stuffed deviled crabs
were $1.40. When was the
last time you had a
corned-beef sandwich at
these prices? Hund's also
provided dinner music
and entertainment.
Speaking of Hund's re-
minds me of Northwood Inn
on Woodward, which was
owned by the same re-
staurateur, Mildred Hund.

things) you could eat be-
- tween dance sets, were -rela-
tively inexpensive treats
and there's not likely to be
anything like them again in
these parts.
I came across a 1940s
breakfast menu which says,
"William Boesky, Joe
Freedman and staff wish
you a Happy New Year."
That breakfast_menu at
their Brass Rail on Adams
featured broiled filet mig-
non sandwich with cole slaw
and French fried potatoes
for 65 cents. Or you could
have smoked lox and eggs
with French fries and toast
for the same price. Coffee
was a nickel.
Many Detroiters re-
member the Marine Dining
Room in Chicago's Edgewa-
ter Beach Hotel. I have a
menu from 1944 and on the
cover is a picture of Chef
Baltera, a nationally-
known personality who had
been serving Marine Dining
Room patrons for almost
two decades.
The table d'hote dinner
included a choice of fresh
seafood cocktail, papaya
nectar or tomato juice,
cream of asparagus soup,
bluepoints, fresh fruit
cocktail - grenadine or
double consomme. The
most expensive entrees
on the menu were filet
mignon of prime beef
tenderloin saute for
$3.20, emince of turkey
and sweetbreads Louise,
lamb chops or roast stuf-
fed fatted capon with
chef's dressing and cran-
berry sauce at $2.85 and
broiled whole squab
chicken on toast with ba-
con, $2.75.
These, of course, were
complete dinners with ap-
petizers, new lima beans or
French fried egg plant, can-
died sweet or creamed
whipped potatoes, Belle
Fermiere salad — lettuce,
pear, strawberries, cream
cheese and jelly — or crisp
heart of lettuce with French
dressing.
Desserts were also in-
cluded and you could order
graham butterscotch or
fresh rhubarb pie, chocolate
marshmallow cake, frozen
puff with chocolate sauce or
a strawberry parfait. Cof-
fee, tea or milk and hot
raised biscuits were part of
the meal. A bottle of Bur-
gundy, Claret, Rhine or
Sauterne wine set custom-
ers back a whopping $1.35.
It was cheaper by the glass
— 30 cents.
There was no cover
charge for early dinner
guests who left before 8 p.m.
For others, there was a 50-
cent cover Sunday through
Friday and 75 cents on
Saturdays and holidays.
But there was a $1 dance
admission charge during
the week and $1.25 Satur-
days, holidays and Sundays
from 6 to midnight.
I found a 1940s simu-
lated wood menu, shaped
like a T from the restau-
rant name, Tip's, which
featured thick steaks
