Of course, the area has changed a lot in a hundred years. The firehouse is now home to offices, a bookstore, and a tea shop. There's a Starbucks across the street. But The Silver Grill still has lots of old-time charm. And its cinnamon rolls are legendary.
For this anniversary, the waitstaff wore what football teams would call throwback uniforms. The menu included German Toast (the original name for French Toast), Beef Croquettes, a hominy scrambler, and the Unsinkable Molly Brown Bread Panini. Boiled hominy was a first-class menu item served on the Titanic, which, as you probably know, sank 100 years ago. (Find the story of Titanic passenger Margaret aka Molly Brown, here.)
