Stork Club, Rhode Island 1930s
Now, imagine that you lived 167 miles away in Rhode Island and could not travel to this glamorous establishment. No problem! A canny restaurateur created his own version of The Stork Club in Providence, Rhode Island – hence this wonderful 1930s menu cover depicting a nattily-dressed stork.
This might have been a small-town version of the real thing, but it was nevertheless a fancy joint. There were complete dinners that patrons could order by number and an a la carte dinner section. There was also a comprehensive drinks list that included cocktails, egg noggs, flips and fizzes, wines and champagnes including 1926 Charles Heidsieck for $7.50 a bottle.
Imitation, they do say, is the sincerest form of flattery and we think this Stork Club, which we believe was situated in Providence, Rhode Island, would have been a fun night spot.
