Dining in Style on Route 66


Dining in Style on Route 66:

Tableside Service with a Smile

21st-century décor has not altered the quality of a classic vintage menu and service at one ultra-fine dining spot in New Mexico.

Named the best steakhouse in the state, Dinner For Two continues to carry great 1950s-era elegance by offering tableside service for two including Caesar Salad, Chateaubriand, and Bananas Foster.

Talent at Every Turn:

Tony Curtis

Tony Curtis liked being a movie star enough to act in 130 films. He even liked being married enough to be wedded six times.

Some have even said he paved the way for actors James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Elvis Presley.


And while his serious films won acclaim, this feature spotlights a “lighter” one.


Tony starred in a 1962 movie with Suzanne Pleshette, set as a remake of Shirley Temple’s, Little Miss Marker, based on the book by Damon Runyon. Filmed partly in Disneyland, it may not have set well with film critics, including this YouTube reviewer.


I would venture to say Tony and Suzanne were not particularly obsessed with ratings once the fun started – and continued – in those rare park scenes.


Many of us long for a simpler time like this; when enjoying innocent, wholesome fun won the day!
