Miller Bros. Excellent Fare, Baltimore, 1955
"No music, no dancing, no frills. The value is on the plate," was the policy of the Miller Brothers whose restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, opened in 1913 and was popular for half a century. Businessmen forged deals over plates of oysters at the raw bar while politicians were given the VIP treatment. (FBI Director) J. Edgar Hoover always ate a rockfish steak," Chef Samuel Roggio told the Baltimore Evening Sun in 1987. "There was a special room for all the politicians who came there to eat. They got special treatment all right, they had everything they wanted." In the early days, Chef Roggio served black bear, reindeer and green sea turtle but tastes of diners evolved and these dishes were eventually taken off the menu. This 1942 menu features a lobster with a glass of champagne. Miller Bros closed in 1963.
