The kids who run the @CapitolGrille Twitter feed (worth a follow) posted this menu from 1921.
In honor of the opening of #TheGreatGatsby tonight, check out one of our @hermitagehotel menus from September, 1921. facebook.com/#!/photo.php?f…

Here it is ...
Things to love: fresh shrimp cocktail for 60 cents; a "Hermitage" parfait; grilled "Homer squab"; a big selection of "ices'; new spinach for 35 cents, 40 cents with an egg
There's a lot of items you don't see on menus anymore — baked apple chantilly and bar-de-luc jelly, fatted chicken liver loaf and Nesselrode pudding.
And don't forget a bottle of half cream/half milk for 30 cents. Only 35 cents if you want crackers with it!
