SIX CHEFS ALL IN A ROW AT “ANGELO’S PLACE” IN GULFPORT, MISSISSIPPI

This vintage real photo postcard provides an inside peek at Mr. Angelo Xidis and five of his “well trusted” assistants preparing vats of meat sauce for his restaurant’s famous spaghetti. In fact, the recipe is described as “almost as secret as the atom bomb”. Chef Xidis was Greek. Xidis’s specialty was spaghetti and meatballs. A sign on the roof stated “Foods – We Feed the People”.  His restaurant was built with steel tiles and glass. The building had live oak trees growing through the roof. Hurricane Camille destroyed the restaurant in 1969. The restaurant was rebuilt and remained in business until 1985. The restaurant was located in Gulfport, Mississippi and faced the Gulf of Mexico. The postcard was published by the Gulfport Printing Co. and is part of a series (No.N36). Mention of the atomic bomb means that the postcard was published likely between 1945 and the early 1950’s. This postcard is in excellent condition (see scans).
