10.5" x 17" board with inset photo of the restaurant. Tom Pritchard was born in Granada, worked as a cook on a Chesapeake oyster schooner and then on a U.S. Army Transport service ship. He became an American citizen and ended up in Manila where he got a job at a restaurant which quickly went under leading him to start Tom's Dixie Kitchen specializing in southern American food. It was hugely successful, a hub of activity serving an estimated 1200 people a day, and led to him opening Tom's Oriental Grill some years later - they both went under during WWII.
