What’s On the Menu? Vintage Items from Coronado Eateries

The Coronado Library will host a talk by author, food-blogger and culinary historian, Martin Lindsay on Thursday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Winn Room. He will discuss how local restaurants have contributed to our cultural history.

The talk will tie in to the library’s exhibit entitled, “What’s on the Menu,” a display of a collection of vintage menus and objects from Coronado eateries. Highlights include Hotel Del menus from 1930-1960 (one is autographed by the cast of Some Like it Hot), La Avenida, Oscar’s Drive In, The Chart House, the Little Chalet, Grumpy Dan’s Grill, Bula’s, Rhinoceros Café and Costa Azul. Some newer menus featured include Chez Loma, The Henry, Feast & Fareway and Little Frenchie. It gives a snapshot of how menu items, graphic design and food prices have changed over the years.
