While rifling through our archives this morning for a picture of Chateubriand, the once-famous Wichita steakhouse that operated for nearly 20 years until it closed in the mid-90s, I came across a gold mine.
Though I didn’t find a picture of Chateubriand, I did find old photo after old photo of Wichita restaurants. Some are still in business, and I found pictures of them on the eves of their openings. Others are long gone, forgotten by some, missed by others.
I thought it would be fun to share a few with you. I’ll start with some of my favorites today and share some more next week.
I love old pictures! Old pictures of Wichita restaurants are even better. (You can click on any of these to make them bigger.)
By the way, if anyone has a picture of Chateubriand in your archive, I will buy you lunch! Also, if you have any classic restaurant pictures, I’d love to see them. E-mail them to me.
