Dinty Moore's Ashtray

$195.00

A favorite hangout for the theater crowd in the 1940s, Dinty Moore's on West 46th Street was an Irish pub/steak and chop house that had been named by its owner, James Moore, after the saloon where Jiggs hung out in the popular comic strip "Bringing Up Father."

James Moore, who began to call himself Dinty after opening the restaurant, was notorious in the 1920s for his flagrant disregard of Prohibition which endeared him with the hard-drinking celebrity set. Corned beef and cabbage, which is not a traditional dish in Ireland where Irish bacon and greens was the usual holiday fare, was the signature dish. The restaurant also served an Irish stew made from kosher beef and lamb and an array of steaks and chops. Its chopped steak was a favorite as was rice pudding, a dessert that was popular throughout New York at the time. (The restaurant had nothing to do with Hormel's canned Dinty Moore beef stew which was introduced in 1935).

Offering an authentic artifact, swiped from a table of the legendary watering hole.
