Picked up a nice wood-grained dinner menu from the Hurricane restaurant in New York.



Tahiti on Broadway at 49th.



The exotic oriental menu.



This place was a block down from Monte Proser's Beachcomber at Broadway and 5oth.

Nice stuff. If only we could turn the clock back about 50-60 years.

I spotted a reverse image doppelganger of the menu I have from the Hurricane - the hut moved, must have been the storm!




I also tried for a nice drink menu on ebay that has a list of the exotic drinks.








I have seen that Hawaiian women image before...


The South Seas in Anaheim.

Spotted this old photo folder from the Hurricane on ebay




That has a photo of the interior.



Nice tapa and hanging lamp.

Also saw a photo of the exterior.

Spotted this menu from the Hurricane on ebay.





Same graphics used by Monte Proser at the early Beachcombers in New York and Miami.


Makes one wonder if Monte wasn't involved in this place at one time?
