Algonquin Hotel lunch menu

Dublin Core

Title Algonquin Hotel lunch menu
Description When they could afford it, the writers at the Algonquin Round Table liked to order the chicken hash with pancakes. But in the early years, those who had little money ordered a cup of tea and then filled up on the free popovers and celery sticks that were placed on the table. Frank Case, who owned the hotel, eventually stopped supplying these treats, much to his guests' irritation.
