[CHINESE] [MENU] [NY] PORT ARTHUR Inc.; 7 and 9 Mott Street

New York: 1943. Staplebound. (8 pages) 25 x 16 cm. Handsome Chinese menu featuring both Americanized dishes and traditional Cantonese fare. Port Arthur opened in 1897 and operated until 1974. One of the earliest Chinatown eateries, this elegantly appointed restaurant was noted to have a lavish entrance featuring an ornate pagoda-style awning and balcony, teakwood furniture, windscreens, Chinese lanterns and a baby grand piano. Located on the 2nd and 3rd floor of 7-9 Mott street, Port Arthur utilized the 2nd floor for the general public while the 3rd floor was a labyrinth of dining rooms dedicated to private banquets. Menu highlights both a la carte dishes, family dinners, Table d'hôte Dinners, American Dinners, and De Luxe Chinese Dinner. Covers lightly stained with closed tear to head of spine. Interior clean, lightly toned. Color illustrated wraps. Very good. Item #2181
