Plantation Kitchen, Las Vegas, 1960s
This witty and imaginative menu from the Stardust Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, advertising a restaurant called The Plantation Kitchen, is from the 1960s. It shows a Southern gent and his lady, both made entirely from vegetables and fruit. He has a nine-pack of carrots, an artichoke beard and arms made out of eggplants. Her hair is made from grapes and plums, she has a décolletage of oranges and grapefruit and a skirt made of melons. The menu cover was one of four specially commissioned from celebrated Spanish artist Vicente Viudes (1916-1984).
