Banquet for P.J. Kindelon at Bergez-Frank's Old Poodle Dog Restaurant, San Francisco, 1912.

San Francisco: Bergez-Frank's Old Poodle Dog Restaurant, 1912. 4.5 x 3.75 inches. 4pp. on card stock with horse shoe and 4 leaf clover with red, white and blue ribbon on cover and Sigma Phi Epsilon cheer pasted on back. In 1908, the owners of the Poodle Dog, the Old Poodle Dog, John Bergez Restaurant and Frank's Rotisserie merged their businesses, opening Bush Street and Claude Lane under Lalanne with partners Jean B. Pon, Jean Bergez, Louis Coutard and Camille Mailhebeau. The restaurant now boasted five floors; the top floor offered a ballroom. A side door mimicked the earlier establishment with a birdcage elevator that took the men and their "companions" upstairs. They brought the elegance of the Nineties back to San Francisco as the Bergez-Franks Old Poodle Dog. The cuisine reflected the skills of some of the finest French chefs in the city but also included innovations unique to San Francisco. The original Louis Dressing originated in the Bergez-Franks Old Poodle Dog circa 1908; a product of the skills of Louis Coutard. Item #51-1096

Price: $125.00
