Menu for the RKO Grill, San Francisco, California

Culver City, CA: RKO, Circa 1939. Original menu from the "Famous RKO Grill" in San Francisco, California, circa 1939.

The massive and varied menu includes food for all three meals of the day, including Italian dishes, Mexican dishes, and Kosher sandwiches and boasts "we never close," in what is clearly a precursor to the anything-you-could want all-night diner. The menu likely dates from 1939, with the specials insert noting that Gertrude Lawrence would be performing in "Skylark" at the Currant Theatre on July 29.

Two-fold two-color menu, 12 x 7.25 inches, with an 11 x 7 inch two-color menu insert and stapled-on dinner specials. Very Good plus, with light soil and toning.
