The Cup & Platter, UK 1966
charming menu cover is from London in the Swinging Sixties and shows a couple wearing white aprons tied around their waists with extravagant bows.
The chef, with a toque on his head and a red bandana around his neck, is passing a steaming hot dish to a pretty waitress or perhaps she is the co-owner.
So far, we’ve been unable to pinpoint the exact location of The Cup and Platter but, judging from the cheerful interior menu, this was an all-day restaurant that served booze and the prices were in British shillings and pence.
When we find out more, we will update.
