This is a wonderful drinks menu from Howard Johnson's, once the biggest restaurant chain in the United States. The design and graphics are strikingly simple and elegant. The interior of this 1960s menu is interesting too. A large selection of cocktails and spirits were on offer with a Howard Johnson's Special costing 55 cents. Jacques Pepin wrote in the New York Times (2005) about his love of the restaurant chain: "...I loved the restaurant in Times Square especially, and often went there, incognito with my friend Jean-Claude. We enjoyed fried clams, and with them we always drank what was the best Manhattan cocktail in town -- it came with a full pitcher for refills alongside the initial filled glass."
The last Howard Jonson’s Restaurant closed down in January 2017 in Lake George, NY.
