"My favorite Schrafft's is the Alexandria Room on the fourth floor of the branch at 556 Fifth Avenue, near 46th street. Recently the room was done over and enriched by beautiful chandeliers and other appointments. The charm remains intact, offering restful dining at the end of a hard day. Service is home type. There is no printed menu, but the capable, courteous waitresses will tell you that, for a fixed price of $3.75, you can have a choice of entrees. Roast prime ribs of beef is always on. Others you might find are fresh lobster thermidor, breast of chicken fricassee on Southern spoon bread and calf's liver grill. This Colonial dinner may begin with grapefruit supreme or tomato bouillon, melba toast and the famous pulled bread, celery, radishes and olives. As the main course is served, the waitress offers different vegetables, also cheese muffins, cinnamon buns and hard rolls. If you feel you haven't had enough, she'll offer more. And so to one of the fancy desserts like chocolate mocha chiffon pie or Schrafft's famous ice cream with butterscotch sauce." ... by Robert W. Dana, World Telegram & Sun
