Get your elbows off the table!

This matchbook makes me crave Italian food, spaghetti like they enjoyed in the movie “Lady and the Tramp”, but the real thing.
I have the feeling Rose ran a tight ship, and no pizza before 9pm. Don’t even ask. Chef Bonventre has many knives.
Apparently a lot of Italians came to St. Louis, so the denizens of that city had many fine Italian eateries to choose from. Here a brief history I googled up… http://www.losttables.com/pizzerias/pizzerias.htm These predate Rose’s, according to the article.
I think Rose’s closed before most of Franklin became MLK.
