1. It’s getting close to dinner time, so we thought we’d share this 1962 St. Patrick’s Day menu from our Rare Books Division to whet your appetites (technically it’s a brunch menu, but whatever). For $5.75 a person, diners got a whole lot of green / Irish branded food, including green bean salad, salmon in a green sauce, green pea soup, and “Leprechaun” beer. Most of the food sounds amazing … although the cup of fresh clam broth with whipped cream sounds a bit odd. Love our historic menus? Check out the blog of Menu Collection curator Rebecca Federman, and then check out our What’s On The Menu? project, which allows the public to transcribe info on our menus into a searchable database, helping culinary historians and researchers. So give it a try - just a warning: it’s addictive.
