Greyhound Post Houses will play a dramatic and unique role
at the New York World's Fair, offering distinctive restaurants
in the Greyhound Transportation Center and several old-fashioned
restaurants in the Liebmann Breweries' (Rheingold Beer) exhibit,
"Little Old New York."
In the Greyhound World's Fair Transportation Center, Post
Houses will have three dining rooms joined by a street, "Main
Street, U.S.A.," and, also, feature a fast cafeteria, snack
bar and a "Food Service of Tomorrow."
The multi-dining room Post House Restaurant in the Greyhound
World's Fair Building -- which is across the street from the
General Motors Building -- will seat more than 500 persons.
Each dining room will have an individual, decorative motif,
and a food specialty.
The Nantucket Room will specialize in foods traditional
to New England -- crabs, clams, clam chowder and lobster. One
glass wall provides a view of an outside pool, and seines, wharf
piles, masts and riggings complement the Cape Code environment.
The Federal Room will specialize in Southern cooking
at its best, served in a splendid, hospitable atmosphere. Such
renown specialties as Maryland Fried Chicken, Baked Country Ham,
Corn Bread, Plantation Shortcake and Pecan Pie are some of the
The Western Room -- highlight BEEF! Hearty Western
cookery, served amidst irons, lariats, guns and trophies of the
Food Services of Tomorrow will afford adventurous chefs
the opportunity to prepare their own complete meal in mere seconds
by microwave energy.
Nor has Post House forgotten the most traditional of all American
fare -- be it Golden Fried Chicken or Roast Round of Beef, featured
at the Cafeteria -- or the ever popular Hamburger or Hot
Dog from the Snack Bar. Either will provide fast service for
the hurried visitor.
A Souvenir Gift Court completes this Post House exhibit in
the Greyhound Pavilion.
At the Liebmann Breweries' exhibit Post Houses will
operate several old-fashioned restaurants in a "Little Old
New York" turn-of-the-century setting. Cobblestone walks
bordered with flowers, trees, park benches and a centrally located
bandstand providing live entertainment are all attuned to the
gay and carefree early 1900's. Fair-goers will find food kiosks,
a Town House restaurant with a solarium facing the Fair's Pool
of Industry, center of night time Fair activities, a sidewalk
cafe, and an intimate tavern. Here Fair-goers will, also, find
gaily costumed hawkers peddling their wares.
Meal service is offered to groups of 100 or more at any time
other than peak service periods in both facilities. During the
meal period, groups of 30 to 60 can be served in the Western,
Nantucket and Federal Rooms or in the solarium of the Town House.
Greyhound Post Houses, as you can see, will be very much in
evidence at the Fair, contributing significantly to the over-all
Greyhound Corporation image.
Plan to include Post House in your World's Fair planning and
encourage our customers to not only leave the driving to us,
but to, also, enjoy a memorable visit to one of the Greyhound
Post House World's Fair restaurants.
