Tudor City Artifact: 1944 MENU

A luncheon/dinner menu from the Tudor City Coffee House in No. 25, dated Saturday, July 8, 1944. 

Though Chilled Prune Juice and Jellied Essence of Tomatoes have gone out of fashion, other dishes on this luncheon menu remain standards today.
The Tudor City Coffee House motto: "This restaurant is operated for the convenience of our Tudor City tenants. Our aim is to serve the best quality foods at moderate prices."

A three-cent liquor tax explains the odd drink prices. Egg nog, offered on this July menu, was apparently a year-round drink.
