The Brown Derby restaurants were hugely popular in Los Angeles, California during the golden age of film-making. This lunch menu from 1947 outlines in red the roads leading to the restaurants in Hollywood and Los Feliz, with the Beverly Hills outpost in the left hand corner. The menu was French-inspired with comfort food additions, often from some of the restaurant's famous customers. "Dorothy Lamour supplied the recipe for Shrimp Creole, and the director Michael Curtiz supplied his family's recipe for Veal Paprika". Legend has it that the Cobb Salad was invented there in the 1930s – it was named after one of the owners – Robert Howard Cobb
